Transesophageal echocardiographic dimensional analysis of four cardiac chambers during positive end-expiratory pressure.

Abstract

The authors examined the effects of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on cardiac function by dimensional analysis of the four heart chambers using M-mode transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). The accuracy of cardiac output (CO) calculated from TEE was confirmed by its close correlation (r = 0.97) with CO, determined by the thermodilution technique… (More)
