ABSTRACT
Examines the intermittent bolus thermodilution (TDCO) method of determining cardiac output. How the process of measuring cardiac output is achieved using the TDCO method; Discussion of the accuracy of the TDCO method; Comparison between the TDCO method and the continuous cardiac output (CCO) method; Procedure used to obtain a TDCO assessment; Checklist for ensuring the validity and reliability of the measurement; Research that is still needed.

    It has frequently been demonstrated that prior high-intensity exercise facilitates pulmonary oxygen uptake [Formula: see text] response at the onset of subsequent identical exercise. To clarify the roles of central O(2) delivery and/or peripheral O(2) extraction in determining this phenomenon,...

  • cardiac output. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p144 

    An encyclopedia entry for "cardiac output" is presented. It refers to the amount of blood the heart pumps every minute. This measure can be used for the assessment of the heart's efficiency. A healthy adult heart pumps between 2.5 and 4.5 liters of blood per minute while at rest while it pumps...

    Fluid infusion is one of the most common critical care interventions, yet approximately 50 % of all fluid interventions are unnecessary and potentially harmful. An improved approach to identification of fluid responsiveness is of clinical importance. Currently fluid responsiveness is most...

    The article presents a comparison of blood pressure measurement over a sleeved arm versus a bare arm. The study aims to determine whether the measurement of blood pressure over a sleeved arm varies from that taken on a bare arm. It reveals that there was no significant difference in blood...

    The calf blood flow at rest and after 3 minutes of circulatory arrest (venous occlusion plethysmography) and the systolic ankle blood pressure (Doppler ultrasound) were measured in the following 5 groups: 13 normotensive subjects without evidence of arterial occlusive disease (group A), 33...

    This experiment compares the cardio- and cerebrovascular effects of modafinil and amphetamine administered to rats. Injections of 300 mg/kg and 600 mg/kg modafinil i.p. had no major effect. In contrast, injection of D-amphetamine sulfate (5 mg/kg i.v.) induced a long-lasting rise in heart rate...
