We would like to study cardiac output, stroke volume, and fluid responsiveness on young adult pediatric patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery with the use of the NICOM, a non-invasive...
Cardiac output (CO) monitoring is an important tool in critically ill patients with haemodynamic instability. Traditionally, this has been accomplished using the pulmonary artery catheter ...
Comparison of noninvasive cardiac output monitor (NICOM, Cheetah Medical) with Edwards FloTrac minimally-invasive cardiac output monitor in predicting fluid responsiveness in sepsis and se...
The Cheetah NICOM is a non-invasive cardiac output monitor that has been validated in various clinical contexts but not during the occlusion of major arteries, as takes place in vascular s...
An accepted "gold standard" for hemodynamic monitoring in women with both healthy and diseased hearts is not currently available. Pregnancy is associated with significant hemodynamic chang...
Pulse pressure variation (PPV) can be used to predict fluid responsiveness in anesthetized patients receiving controlled mechanical ventilation but usually requires dedicated advanced monitoring. Caps...
Capstesia is an app for smartphones that can serve as a simple, accessible and affordable alternative to current advanced hemodynamic monitoring devices. The aim of this paper was to establish the deg...
Hemodynamic parameters measurements were widely conducted using pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) with thermodilution as a reference standard. Due to its technical difficulties in children, transthoraci...
Cardiovascular function assessment is most often mandatory required in preclinical studies in all industrialized countries. The invasiveness and impact of the monitoring devices used on animals have t...
Determination of cardiac output (CO) is essential in diagnosis and management of heart failure (HF). The gold standard to obtain CO is invasive assessment via thermodilution (TD). Noninvasive pulse co...
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 partial adrenergic agonist with functional beta 1-receptor specificity and inotropic effect. It is effective in the treatment of acute cardiac failure, postmyocardial infarction low-output syndrome, shock, and reducing orthostatic hypotension in the Shy-Drager syndrome.
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.
