Comparison of cardiac output measurement using the CardioQP oesophageal Doppler with cardiac output measurement using thermodilution technique in children during heart catheterisation


Knirsch, W; Kretschmar, O; Tomaske, M; Stutz, K; Nagdyman, N; Balmer, C; Schmitz, A; Berger, F; Bauersfeld, U; Weiss, M (2008). Comparison of cardiac output measurement using the CardioQP oesophageal Doppler with cardiac output measurement using thermodilution technique in children during heart catheterisation. Anaesthesia, 63(8):851-855.

Abstract

The minimally invasive CardioQP oesophageal Doppler probe estimates cardiac output by measuring blood flow velocity in the descending aorta. Individual variables to enter are patient's age, weight and height. We measured cardiac output simultaneously with CardioQP and pulmonary artery catheter thermodilution techniques during heart catheterisation in 40 paediatric patients with congenital heart defects. Median [range] age was 8.2 years [0.5-16.7 years], cardiac output values measured by thermodilution and CardioQP were 3.6 l.min(-1) [1.2-7.1 l.min(-1)] and 3.0 l.min(-1) [0.7-6.7 l.min(-1)], respectively. These values showed only moderate correlation (r = 0.809; p < 0.0001). Bias and precision were 0.66 l.min(-1) and 1.79 l.min(-1) (95% limits of agreement: -1.13 to +2.45 l.min(-1)). Based on our preliminary experience, cardiac output values measured by CardioQP in children do not reliably represent cardiac output values compared with the thermodilution technique. We suggest measurement of individual aortic diameter to improve performance of the CardioQP.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
