Cardiac output measurement Philips CCO/C.O. cardiac output module supports the clinical "gold standard" intermittent right heart thermodilution method or continuous PiCCO® technology.
Right heart thermodilution provides a thermodilution curve and the following numerics:
- Cardiac output
- Cardiac index
The module's built-in algorithms analyze the cardiac output curve. Automatic alerts can help the clinician decide which output curves to accept.
