The flow profile is displayed on the USCOM monitor with the spectral display showing variations of blood flow velocity with time.
Across all patients, a significant correlation was observed between the first Vigileo and USCOM CO measurements (r=0.537, P <0.001) (Figure 1A).
This suggests that at increased heart rates USCOM will tend to report higher CO values than those recorded with Vigileo.
Stroke volume and related measurements were performed using a non-invasive, transcutaneous Doppler device, USCOM. This device is an accurate and safe alternative to the pulmonary artery catheter in ICU (10).
We thank USCOM Ltd, who kindly loaned the USCOM device used in this study.
The present study was designed to compare USCOM derived cardiac output measurements from the aortic and pulmonary valve ultrasound windows with thermodilution cardiac measurements.
Thermodilution and USCOM cardiac output measurements were commenced simultaneously in the operating theatre immediately after PAC placement and again after closure of the chest.
Using USCOM methodology, cardiac output was measured at both aortic and pulmonary valves.
