Acta clinica Croatica, Vol.50 No.2 June 2011. -

The accuracy of cardiac output measurement by two most widely used methods of less invasive hemodynamic monitoring and by the standard technique of thermodilution with pulmonary catheter was assessed. The measurements were carried out in septic surgical patients immediately after and between system calibrations. Study results showed satisfactory compatibility of measurements performed by the two methods and by pulmonary catheter in both phases, thus system calibration being recommendable in hemodynamically unstable septic patients.
