The use of a compartmental hypothesis for the estimation of cardiac output from dye-dilution curves and the analysis of radiocardiograms

Abstract

Three approximate methods for the computation of cardiac output from dye-dilution curves have been analysed using the classical Stewart-Hamilton technique as a reference in a total of 89 curves obtained from 11 dogs. The gamma-function method has a tendency to overestimate on the average (+7·1%±1·6%), with an 82% probability of falling within ±20% of the… (More)
