Doppler ultrasound can be used to measure cardiac output (CO). Intraoperative Doppler cardiac output (DCO) by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has been studied using blood flow velocity from the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT), the mitral valve (MV), and the main pulmonary artery (MPA). The purpose of this study was to compare DCO, measured from a relatively new TEE view of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), with thermodilution cardiac output (TDCO). We also compared… CONTINUE READING
