The measurement of right ventricular volume will be reviewed with special reference to the conductance catheter technique. The historical development of the intracavitary impedance technique will be described along with the theory of the multielectrode conductance method. The major potential advantage of this technique is its ability to measure dynamic volume change during the cardiac cycle. This enables a real time beat to beat assessment of ventricular volume in addition to providing… CONTINUE READING
