Reliability of the cardiac output measurement with the indirect Fick-principle for CO2 during exercise

Abstract

Cardiac output measurements were performed during 50 exercise tests in 16 normal subjects employing the indirect Fick principle for CO2. During sub-maximal steady state exercise the plateau CO2 tension ( $$P_{plat CO_2 } $$ ) was estimated with a rebreathing procedure. The mixed venous CO2 tension ( $$P_{\bar v CO_2 } $$ ) was calculated by subtracting the… (More)
