The ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) is a new Doppler device for noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring. The aim of this prospective nonrandomized study was to test the feasibility, perioperative reliability, and clinical applicability of using USCOM as an alternative to pulmonary artery catheterization in recipients of living donor liver transplantation. Thirteen patients scheduled to receive living donor liver transplants were initially recruited. Three were subsequently excluded prior… Expand

TLDR
This device is accurate in measuring CO in liver transplant recipients postoperatively and possible risks of arrhythmia, infection and pulmonary artery rupture can be avoided because of its noninvasive nature. Expand
Accuracy of the ultrasonic cardiac output monitor in healthy term neonates during postnatal circulatory adaptation.
TLDR
Normal neonatal hemodynamic values, as indicated by USCOM, were established and the progressive rise of arterial pressure and SVRI despite a declining LV-CI may indicate functional closure of the ductus arteriosus. Expand
Cardiac output derived from arterial pressure waveform analysis in patients undergoing liver transplantation: validity of a third-generation device.
TLDR
Despite a software upgrade, the effectiveness of the FloTrac artery-derived cardiac output monitor for CO measurement during liver transplantation remains limited. Expand
Cardiac Output Measurements in Septic Patients: Comparing the Accuracy of USCOM to PiCCO
TLDR
USCOM does reliably represent CO values as compared to the reference technique based on thermodilution (PiCCO) and seems to be appropriate in situations where CO measurements are most pertinent to patient management. Expand

TLDR
SV (and thus cardiac output) measured using the USCOM correlated well with echocardiographic cardiac output measurement, which suggests that the US COM could be a valuable haemodynamic tool for assessment of cardiac output and fluid responsiveness in critically ill patients if patients with aortic stenosis are excluded.

ULTRASONIC CARDIAC OUTPUT MEASUREMENT FOR NON-INVASIVE CARDIAC OUTPUT MONITORING : UPDATE AND LITERATURE REVIEW
In this article, we review use and clinical utility of the Ultrasonic Cardiac Output Monitor, manufactured in Australia, which was first introduced clinically in 2001. It is non-invasive, requiresExpand
Cardiac index measurements by transcutaneous Doppler ultrasound and transthoracic echocardiography in adult and pediatric emergency patients
TLDR
The USCOM-1A hemodynamic monitoring technology showed poor correlation and agreement to standard transthoracic echocardiography measures of cardiac function, and the utility of USCOM -1A in the management of critically ill patients remains to be determined. Expand
Utilization of bioreactance technique as indicator for preload responsiveness during living donor liver donation.
TLDR
This study has shown that SVV measured from the bioreactance technique is a poor indicator for monitoring preload responsiveness during LDLD. Expand
Cardiac output derived from arterial pressure waveform analysis: validation of the third-generation software in patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation.
TLDR
CO measurements obtained using the less invasive arterial waveform FloTrac/Vigileo system upgraded with the third-generation software had poor intraoperative agreement with pulmonary artery thermodilution CO measurements in patients undergoing OLT. Expand
Measurement of cardiac output during adult donor care.
TLDR
A prospective comparison of all methods against the pulmonary artery catheter thermodilution technique among donors would provide the best data to resolve the clinical and potentially cost-important question of measurement of cardiac output. Expand

TLDR
The analysis suggests that when the cardiac index is preserved, the majority of patients with moderate and severe PHT can survive LT, and they will not die of PHT during long‐term follow-up. Expand
