Welcome to this section which gives information about cardiac output measurement beat-by-beat using arterial pressure waveform analysis.

We have recently described a new algorithm for derivation of cardiac output by arterial pressure waveform analysis: [Linton, NWF and Linton, RAF. Estimation of changes in cardiac output from the arterial blood pressure waveform in the upper limb. British Journal of Anaesthesia 2001; 86: 486-496].

We present information about this method and give examples of its clinical usefulness and research potential.
