Volume Expansion Increases Cardiac Output (co) but Not Oxygen Delivery (qo2) in Piglets


Piglets (1-3 wks; n=12) were anaesthetized, intubated, and ventilated. Blood pressure (BP), pulmonary artery pressure (PAP), left atrial pressure (LAP), central venous pressure (CVP), and CO were measured directly. Arterial and mixed venous (PA) blood samples were obtained to determine QO2, O2 consumption (VO2), and O2 extraction. Six piglets (GENT… (More)
