About

Cardiac output (CO) monitoring is of primary importance in high-risk surgery and critically ill patients. Intermittent thermodilution (ThD) by means of a pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) was invasiveness, the occurrence of complications, and inability to estimate CO on a beat-by-beat basis may explain the reduction in routine use. Echocardiography is now widely used. However, a poor acoustic window, inaccurate diameter calculations, and difficulty maintaining the angle of insonation and blood flow within the recommended values may lead to inaccuracy in CO estimation.Pulse contour methods (PCMs) are commonly used as they seem to fulfill most of the characteristics of an "ideal" hemodynamic monitoring system. Mostcare can continuously and real-time monitor important circulatory indicators such as cardiac output, peripheral vascular resistance index (SVRI), cardiovascular impedance (Ztot), cardiac cycle efficiency (CCE), and maximum pressure gradient (dp/dt MAX). It may help identify the causes of difficulty in weaning patients from ventilators after cardiac surgery.

Full description

Cardiac output (CO) monitoring is of primary importance in high-risk surgery and critically ill patients. Intermittent thermodilution (ThD) by means of a pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) has been used as the reference method and to validate alternative monitoring systems. Its invasiveness, the occurrence of complications, and inability to estimate CO on a beat-by-beat basis may explain the reduction in routine use. Echocardiography is now widely used in ICUs for the complete assessment of heart function, volume status, and CO measurement. Because it has been well accepted as a first-line diagnostic tool for circulatory failure, it has been proposed as an alternative for ThD to evaluate CO in selected patient populations . A poor acoustic window, inaccurate diameter calculations, and difficulty maintaining the angle of insonation and blood flow within the recommended values may lead to inaccuracy in CO estimation.Finally, training is of major importance. Pulse contour methods (PCMs) are commonly used in operating rooms or ICUs as they seem to fulfill most of the characteristics of an "ideal" hemodynamic monitoring system. Mostcare can continuously and real-time monitor important circulatory indicators such as cardiac output, peripheral vascular resistance index (SVRI), cardiovascular impedance (Ztot), cardiac cycle efficiency (CCE), and maximum pressure gradient (dp/dt MAX). It may help identify the causes of difficulty in weaning patients from ventilators after cardiac surgery. This is a prospective observational study. Patients admitted to the ICU after cardiac surgery and mechanically ventilated for more than 72 hours were monitored for mostcare before attempting to withdraw from the ventilator, and assessment of systemic circulation and cardiac ultrasound was completed. Patients were given an spontaneous breathing test(SBT) off the ventilator. Mostcare parameters were also recorded. If the SBT experiment was successful the endotracheal tube was removed, if it failed then mostcare monitoring and assessment of circulation and ultrasound were performed again after resumption of mechanical ventilation.
