The authors propose using a multi-electrode conductance catheter to measure continuous right ventricular volume. True ventricular volume measurements are affected by four main sources of error. 1) field non-uniformity, 2) catheter curvature, 3) blood conductivity changes, and 4) leakage of current through surrounding tissues. Three-dimensional finite-element models were developed to investigate the effects of these sources of error and to devise schemes for correcting them. The models include… CONTINUE READING
