A novel method of calculating stroke volume using point-of-care echocardiography
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractPoint-of-care transthoracic echocardiography (POC-TTE) is essential in shock management, allowing for stroke volume (SV) and cardiac output (CO) estimation using left ventricular outflow tract diameter (LVOTD) and left ventricular velocity time integral (VTI). Since LVOTD is difficult to obtain and error-prone, the body surface area (BSA) or a modified BSA (mBSA) is sometimes used as a surrogate (LVOTDBSA, LVOTDmBSA). Currently, no models of LVOTD based on patient characteristics exist nor have BSA-based alternatives been validated.
