during hyperoxia (Table 1), other factors affecting the haemoglobin dissociation curve have not been assessed in this study.
The results are interesting in that they suggest cardiac index
and brain health are related," said Angela L.
placebo), cardiac index

Her cardiac index
on Swan-Ganz catheterization was 1.
Forty-eight hours after the device was implanted, average cardiac index
, which reflects how much blood the heart is pumping in relation to body weight, rose by 43%, while a measure of pressure within the heart fell by 52%.
An increase in cardiac index
, a measure of how much blood the heart is putting into circulation for the body's organs (secondary endpoint).
To improve the CPP, the mean arterial pressure (MAP) is elevated by increasing the cardiac index
and decreasing the systemic vascular resistance.
Dose-related improvements in pulmonary vascular resistance index (PVRI) and mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) were observed in patients treated with Revatio, and improvements in cardiac index
were observed with all three Revatio groups over placebo.
Secondary endpoints include change in mean pulmonary arterial pressure and cardiac index
as well as change in six-minute walk distance.
2], cardiac index
and stroke volume variation (Vigileo [TM] Edwards-Lifesciences, USA), Bispectral Index and train-of-four stimulation (TOF-Watch SX, Dublin, Ireland) of the ulnar nerve.
also increased as lateral ventricular volume decreased, but this relationship was not significant when individuals with CVD were excluded.
The cardiac index
changed in an inverse fashion to the filling pressures; however, these changes were not significant.
Repeat right heart catheterization showed improvement of cardiac output, cardiac index
Although natriuretic peptides are sensitive but nonspecific markers of ventricular dysfunction, they should not be regarded as a surrogate for a single cardiac index
In the immediate postop period, up to 48 hours from baseline, we had a significant change in cardiac index
," THI cardiologist Timothy Myers told the conference attendees.
