This study was undertaken to evaluate the fluctuations of cardiac parameters in a baboon model during pentobarbitone anaesthesia which will serve as a baseline control for shock studies. Thermodilution and radionuclide methods were used to determine cardiac parameters. Radionuclide studies were repeated without any cardiac catheters to assess the effect of these on cardiac performance. The results represent baseline fluctuations in cardiac parameters against which cardiac dysfunction can be diagnosed in shock studies. The results also indicate that cardiac catheterisation does not affect cardiac performance significantly.
