The Clinical Research of NICaS for Monitoring Changes of Cardiac Function in Patients with Sepsis (two part study – part 1)
Authors: Zhu Yan Second Military Medical University CONCLUSION: NICaS can measure the cardiac output and stroke volume in sepsis patients as accurate as ultrasonic Cardiogram, and the exclusive GGI figure NICaS provides has a positive correlation with EF of Ultrasonic Cardiogram but without significance, which may be attributed to the fact that the GGI is […]
Authors: Brent Momb, Samuel Arlington Headley, Tracey Matthews, Michael J. Germain In conclusion, exercise during dialysis may decrease the likelihood of experiencing ischemic or hypotensive events by enhancing myocardial perfusion through increasing CPI and ̇Q. For the full article click here
Authors: Yusuke Tanino, Junya Shite, Oscar L Paredes, Toshiro Shinke, Daisuke Ogasawara, Takahiro Sawada, Hiroyuki Kawamori, Naoki Miyoshi, Hiroki Kato, Naoki Yoshino, Ken-ichi Hirata Conclusion: Hemodynamic parameters derived by NICaS are applicable for the non-invasive assessment of cardiac function in outpatient CHF follow-up.

Whole-body electrical bio-impendance is accurate in non invasive determination of cardiac output: A thermodilution controlled, prospective, double blind evaluation.
Authors: Guillermo Torre-Amione, Olga Milo, Edo Kaluski, Zvi Vered, Gad Cotter NICaS is a novel accurate noninvasive method for CO determination. The results of this study suggest that the NICaS might be more accurate than thermodilution for CO determination due to the tendency of thermodilution to underestimate CO when high and overestimate it when low.

The reliability of noninvasive cardiac system hemodynamic monitoring in the cardiac intensive care patient requiring mechanical circulatory support
Authors: Guido Tavazzi, Policlinico San Matteo Pavia Fondazione, A Fernandez-Gasalla, Ana Barradas-Pires, Yoseph Mebrate Conclusion: Both Pearson correlation and linear regression demonstrated an excellent correlation between CO measured by echo and the NICaS. NICaS looks to be a reliable noninvasive CO monitoring in ICU patients. For the full article click here
Authors: Danny Epstein, Ariel Guinzburg , Saar Sharon , Shai Kiso , Yuval Glick , Erez Marcusohn , Yehuda Daniel Glass , Asaf Miller , Sa’ar Minha , Ariel Furer Conclusion: Our study suggests that continuous monitoring of SV may be more useful than either the HR, BP, or shock index in identifying patients with […]
Non invasive measurements of cardiac output (CO) and cardiac power index (CPI) by whole body bio impedance in patients with heart failure.
European Journal of Heart Failure Supplements ( 2012 ) UK Overview: Hemodynamic dysfunction is often used as part of the definition for heart failure (HF), predicts an adverse outcome and could be an important target for therapy but is rarely measured in routine practice, perhaps because simple, effective, inexpensive technology is lacking. We assessed the […]
Noninvasive and simple assessment of cardiac output and pulmonary vascular resistance with whole-body impedance cardiography is useful for monitoring patients with pulmonary hypertension
Background: Cardiac Power Index (CPI) is a novel parameter calculated by CI*MAP and is considered to be a reliable indicator of myocardial contractility. Previous studies done by RHC technique demonstrated that CPI is the best in-hospital mortality predictor4,5,6. The target of this study was to find whether non-invasively measured CPI has a good predictive capability […]
Authors: Stefan Bogan, Israel Mazin, Igor Lipchenca, David Bar Lev , Osnat Gurevitz, Eyal Nof, Ilan Goldenberg, Sagit Ben Zekry, Michael Eldar, Michael Glikson, Roy Beinart Conclusion: Baseline GGI predicted acute hemodynamic improvement during NICaS guided CRT optimization. A baseline of 11.5 could be possibly used in order to outline those who may benefit from […]
