As a newly developed technique for hemodynamic monitoring, pulse contour cardiac output (PiCCO) monitoring takes great advantages in guiding shock resuscitation and fluid administration. PiCCO has been used more and more in burn patients in recent years, however there is no clinic consensus on how to apply PiCCO monitoring, understand the significance of PiCCO monitored parameters, and guide the treatment using PiCCO monitored parameters in patients with severe burns. Based on the current literature and the experts' clinical experience, (2018 ) is now issued by the Burn and Trauma Branch of Chinese Geriatrics Society, aiming to provide practical guidance for its usage in clinic.

What is the central question of this study? Pulse contour analysis of the finger arterial pressure by Windkessel modeling is commonly used to continuously estimate stroke volume; but, is it valid duri...
Sildenafil is a pulmonary vasodilator that has potential to mitigate the decrement in endurance performance caused by hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction. The purpose of this study was to determine the...
How do information sources influence the reported Cerebral Performance Category (CPC) for in-hospital cardiac arrest survivors? An observational study from the UK National Cardiac Arrest Audit (NCAA).
Cerebral Performance Category (CPC) can be used to categorise neurological outcome after cardiac arrest. There is no consensus on what information sources can be used to derive the CPC. This study des...
Although Doppler echocardiography is routinely used to assess left ventricle cardiac output, there are limited data about the feasibility of Doppler echocardiography for right ventricular (RV) cardiac...
The aim of the present study is to compare accuracy and precision of Cardiac Output (CO) by nine different pulse contour algorithms with transpulmonary thermodilution before and after card...
Hemodynamic monitoring of the critically-ill patients is increasingly performed using an arterial pulse contour-based cardiac output device such as the proAQT system. The aim of this stud...
Dynamic arterial elastance (Eadyn) has been proposed as an indicator of arterial tone that can predict norepinephrine-dependent arterial pressure. Eadyn is calculated using the ratio of re...
The objective of the present study is to investigate accuracy of changes in cardiac output following passive leg raising as estimated by transthoracic ultrasound as method to predict fluid...
Determination of hemodynamics plays an important role in the diagnosis of chronic heart failure. The gold standard is intermittent thermodilution via pulmonary artery catheter (PAC). Becau...
A state of elevated cardiac output due to conditions of either increased hemodynamic demand or reduced cardiac oxygen output. These conditions may include ANEMIA; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; THYROTOXICOSIS; PREGNANCY; EXERCISE; FEVER; and ANOXIA. In time, compensatory changes of the heart can lead to pathological form of high cardiac output and eventual HEART FAILURE.
Evaluation of the contour of the PULSE waves which vary in different parts of the circulation and depend on physiological as well as pathophysiological conditions of the individual.
A state of subnormal or depressed cardiac output at rest or during stress. It is a characteristic of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, including congenital, valvular, rheumatic, hypertensive, coronary, and cardiomyopathic. The serious form of low cardiac output is characterized by marked reduction in STROKE VOLUME, and systemic vasoconstriction resulting in cold, pale, and sometimes cyanotic extremities.
A condition of fainting spells caused by heart block, often an atrioventricular block, that leads to BRADYCARDIA and drop in CARDIAC OUTPUT. When the cardiac output becomes too low, the patient faints (SYNCOPE). In some cases, the syncope attacks are transient and in others cases repetitive and persistent.
Compression of the heart by accumulated fluid (PERICARDIAL EFFUSION) or blood (HEMOPERICARDIUM) in the PERICARDIUM surrounding the heart. The affected cardiac functions and CARDIAC OUTPUT can range from minimal to total hemodynamic collapse.
Geriatrics is the branch of medicine that is concerned with the diagnosis and management of diseases and disorders that occur in old age. A specialty is required because of the frequency of co-morbidities in these patients and the reduced strength of the...
