We describe a patient with severe left ventricular dysfunction simultaneously monitored with pulse contour cardiac output (PiCCO) analysis, a continuous cardiac output pulmonary artery catheter (continuous COPAC) and intraoperative transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE). There was good agreement between cardiac output (CO) measurements obtained by the three techniques prior to cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Agreement of CO measurements following CPB was initially pool; but improved following recalibration of PiCCO. PiCCO-derived global end-diastolic volume index (GEDVI) and cardiac function index (CFI), were assessed as markers of left ventricular preload and myocardial contractility, respectively. GEDVI correlated well with CO in the postoperative period. CFI increased more than two-fold following coronary revascularization and milrinone administration, and there was also a temporal relationship between the CFI and the dose of milrinone in the first 24 hours of treatment. Global end-diastolic volume and cardiac function index may be useful additional measures of left ventricular preload and myocardial contractility in patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction.
