The potential for mathematical coupling exists between thermodilution cardiac output and right ventricular end-diastolic volume (RVEDV) because RVEDV is derived from stroke volume which is calculated from thermodilution cardiac output (88).
Continuously assessed right ventricular end-diastolic volume as a marker of cardiac preload and fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated cardiac surgical patients.
Although the preload measures of global end-diastolic volume index and pulmonary artery occlusion pressure correlated with cardiac output (Figure 3) in the postoperative period, readings for both were substantially above the reference range.
5% reduction in the preload measure global end-diastolic volume index.
Concomitantly, the absolute decreases in LV end-systolic volumes and end-diastolic volumes
at 18 months in the WJMSC group were significantly greater than those in the placebo group.
LV end-systolic, end-diastolic volumes
and ejection fraction (EF) were calculated from apical two- and four-chamber views by using the modified Simpson method.
TOPROL-XL has been shown to improve ejection fraction and delay the increase in LV end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes
after six months of treatment (these are functional markers of cardiac remodeling).
