Arterial pressure-based technologies: a new trend in cardiac output monitoring.

PMID:  16728303     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
New trends in cardiovascular monitoring use the arterial pulse as a less invasive means of assessing cardiac output. When adopting a new technology into practice, three questions need to be answered: (1) is the method technologically sound?, (2) is it based on physiologic principles?, and (3) are the applications clinically important? This article provides a clinical review on the technology, physiology, and applications of a new arterial pressure-based method of determining cardiac output and stroke volume variation as an additional parameter for fluid status assessment.
