This study will assess the amount of energy that the heart will deliver to the central circulation and the efficiency of that energy transfer, in patients undergoing a coronary artery bypass graft operation. Measurements will be taken just after induction of anaesthesia and repeated just after the end of the operation. The total energy delivered by the heart will be calculated by multiplying a pressure curve from the artery in the hand with the instantaneous ultrasound recorded cardiac output flow curve. The energy responsible for the acceleration of the blood volume, known as oscillatory power will also be calculated. The energy transfer will be calculated using a mathematical model based upon other ultrasound and blood pressure recorded variables. We would like to see if any alteration in energy delivered is in part due to impairment in energy transfer or alteration of fraction of oscillatory power rather than a change in total energy production. We would also like to study if there are changes in the oscillatory power after cardiac bypass surgery. The patients will be sampled sequentially into the study. We are not aware of any such studies undertaken in humans previously.

Pathological conditions involving the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM including the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.
Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the cardiovascular system or its organs or demonstration of their physiological processes.
Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.
Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)
