The purpose of this study was to compare the approximated values for intrathoracic blood volume (ITBV) and extravascular lung water (EVLW) obtained from a single indicator dilution to the exact data measured by double-indicator dilution. Eighteen patients with an average TBSA of 46.3% (range, 26 to 67%) and an average abbreviated burn severity index of 8.7 (range, 7 to 11) were included into a intraindividual comparative prospective study over a 20-month period. The COLD Z-021 system (Pulsion… CONTINUE READING
