The optimum method of intraoperative monitoring in patients undergoing off-pump coronary bypass remains debatable. Using capnography and end-tidal carbon dioxide pressure may be a helpful method of monitoring cardiac output trends, especially when grafting posterior and lateral vessels. After repositioning the heart, End-tidal carbon dioxide pressures that continue to trend down usually indicate decreased cardiac output and precede hemodynamic and electrical instability. The advantages of this method include simplicity, universal availability, and a short response time to changes in cardiac output.
