Cardiac Output Monitoring

Home / Cardiac Output Monitoring

Evaluation of cardiac output monitoring techniques is completed in the ICETLABs mock circulation loop. This in-vitro test rig allows simple manipulation of heart rate, ventricular contractility, systolic time, vascular resistance and, therefore, cardiac output. Various healthy and pathological states can be simulated to evaluate the accuracy of cardiac output monitoring devices and compare user variability. The mock circulation loop has been used to evaluation the USCOM Device and the Pulmonary Artery Catheter.
