The purpose of this study was to compare CO measured by two easy to use non-invasive monitors, the esCCO (Nihon Kohden, Tokyo, Japan) to the Volume View (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, USA) and to assess their trending ability in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.


Cardiac output (CO) is a major physiological variable that should be monitored closely during cardiac surgery in order to assess and guide therapeutic interventions so as to decrease postoperative morbidity. The purpose of this study was to compare CO measured by two easy to use non-invasive monitors, the esCCO (Nihon Kohden, Tokyo, Japan) to the Volume View (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, USA) and to assess their trending ability in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. After Internal review board approval and written informed consent, 19 patients were included in this study. Before cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), CO was measured simultaneously using both the esCCO and the Volume View device before and after 3 CO-modifying maneuvers [passive leg raise (PLR), end expiratory occlusion test (EEOT) and positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) at 10 cm H2O. Five CO values for esCCO and three for volume view were averaged and compared during a one minute period of time before and after each maneuver. The precision error and its 95% confidence interval (CI) that corresponds to the least significant change (LSC) were calculated within this period of time. The Bland-Altman analysis was used to compare bias, precision and limits of agreement (LOA) of both devices. Trending ability of CO changes was assessed by a modified 4 quadrant plot analysis, within angular limits of agreement considered as acceptable when the mean angle between both delta CO was less than 30°.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
