  1. Evaluation of a new continuous thermodilution cardiac output monitor in cardiac surgical patients: a prospective criterion standard study.

    Critical Care Medicine 27(2):293 (1999) PMID 10075052

    Continuous cardiac output measurement using the thermodilution technique is reasonably accurate, reliable, and applicable in routine clinical practice. The values obtained using the Normal mode of the monitor agreed significantly better with the conventional thermodilution method than the results of...
  2. Determination of cardiac output during mechanical ventilation by electrical bioimpedance or thermodilution in patients with acute lung injur...

    Critical Care Medicine 26(8):1441 (1998) PMID 9710107

    In patients with acute lung injury: a) the agreement between TEB-CO and TD-CO measurements is poor; b) agreement is not clinically improved by application of PEEP; and c) TEB cannot monitor trends in CO....
  3. Continuous, less invasive, hemodynamic monitoring in intensive care after cardiac surgery.

    The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon 46(4):242 (1998) PMID 9776501

    A pulse-contour-based method for continuous measurement of cardiac output (CO) and systemic vascular resistance (SVR) was tested and arterial thermodilution, used for calibration, was compared to pulmonary artery thermodilution. In 30 patients CO and SVR were measured by pulse contour analysis (COpc...
  4. [Propofol or ketamine in anesthesia of the very old patient. Study of the hemodynamic effects during induction].

    Annales Françaises d'Anesthésie et de Réanim... 6(4):247 (1987) PMID 3498392

    I 1 mg X kg-1 propofol, group II 1.5 mg X kg-1 ketamine. After injection, the patients were left spontaneously breathing oxygen, and were assisted when apneic. Haemodynamic measures with a Swan-Ganz catheter and thermodilution cardiac output calculator were made before and 1, 3, 5, 10 and 15 min aft...
  5. Effects of injectate volume on thermodilution measurements of cardiac output in patients with low ventricular ejection fraction.

    American Journal of Critical Care 8(2):86 (1999) PMID 10071698

    Cardiac outputs measured with 5- and 10-mL injectates do not differ significantly. The greater variability of measurements obtained with a 5-mL injectate suggests that more measurements, and thus more time, are needed to measure cardiac output accurately. Clinicians must weigh the benefit of minimiz...
  6. Experimental assessment of right ventricular function in normal pigs with a left ventricular assist device.

    Artificial Organs 18(12):918 (1994) PMID 7887829

    We conclude that, at the volume overload state, LVAD can reduce the afterload of the right ventricle and maintain Frank-Starling's effect, thus having a beneficial effect on right ventricular performance....
  7. Continuous thermodilution measurement of cardiac output: in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation.

    The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon 42(1):32 (1994) PMID 8184391

    The current study was designed to evaluate a method for continuous measurement of cardiac output. The system consists of a modified pulmonary artery catheter that uses the thermodilution principle for determination of cardiac output. The evaluation was performed in vitro and in vivo. In-vitro evalua...
  8. Effects of iced and room temperature injectate on cardiac output measurements in critically ill patients with low and high cardiac outputs.

    Heart & Lung: The Journal of Acute and Critical... 22(1):55 (1993) PMID 8420857

    We found significant differences between cardiac output measurements with room temperature and those with iced injectate in eleven critically ill patients with low cardiac outputs (< or = 3.5 L/min) and in ten critically ill patients with high cardiac outputs (> or = 8.0 L/min). In the low cardiac o...
  9. Effects on right ventricular function of a change from dopamine to dobutamine in critically ill patients.

    Critical Care Medicine 16(7):659 (1988) PMID 3371041

    These results support the view that dobutamine has more favorable effects on RV function than dopamine in critically ill patients in the absence of profound hypotension and also indicates that higher filling pressures under dopamine administration can be related to changes in ventricular pressure/vo...
  10. Influence of acute normovolemic hemodilution on extravascular lung water in cardiac surgery.

    Critical Care Medicine 16(4):336 (1988) PMID 3258222

    We conclude that preoperative normovolemic HD did not increase lung water content significantly nor compromise pulmonary function even in cardiac surgery patients. Although ECC provides an additional HD (crystalloid priming of the heart-lung bypass machine) and possibly damage of capillary integrity...
