Study on the Repeatability of Cardiac Output Measurements Dependence of Temperature of Injectate

2014-08-27 03:38:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study tests the reliability of thermodilution cardiac output measurements with pulmonary artery catheters in immediate connection with heart surgery. In accordance with our clinical practice, thermal indicator injections are synchronized with respiration. The impact on measurement repeatability of spontaneous vs artificial ventilation and the effect of the injectate temperature is tested.

The study hypothesis is that when injections are synchronized with the respiration, only three injections at room temperature are needed to be within 5 % of the "true" cardiac output in mechanically ventilated patients.

Description

Bolus thermodilution cardiac output measurements by means of a pulmonary artery catheter have been a mainstay of monitoring critically ill patients for more than thirty years. Recent studies have questioned wether the traditional practice of averaging measurements from tree room temperature thermal indicator injections give sufficient precision.

This study tests the number of indicator injections necessary to be within 5 % of the "true" cardiac output (taken as the average of 16 injections) when the injection is synchronized with the respiration. The reliability of the thermodilution measurements are tested A) in sedated, artificially ventilated cardiac surgical patients and B) in the same patients when postoperatively awake and spontaneously breathing. We further compare the use of room temperature and iced thermal indicator injections.

The study hypothesis is that when injections are synchronized with the respiration, only three injections at room temperature are needed to achieve the desired precision in mechanically ventilated patients.

Only patients receiving a pulmonary artery catheter according our institution standard procedure of care will be included.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.

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.

The blood pressure as recorded after wedging a CATHETER in a small PULMONARY ARTERY; believed to reflect the PRESSURE in the pulmonary CAPILLARIES.

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.

Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.
