Transthoracic electrical bioimpedance versus thermodilution technique for cardiac output measurement during mechanical ventilation

Abstract

To study the possible influence of mechanical ventilation on the accurracy of thoracic electrical bioimpedance (TEI) in the measurement of cardiac output, we determined cardiac output concurrently by TEI using Kubicek's equation and by thermodilution in 8 acutely ill patients who were mechanically ventilated (assist/control mode) but who had no underlying… (More)
