Comparison of non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring by bioimpedance and echocardiography in cardiac intensive care unit patients

Authors:N. Kofman; A.;A. Rotmansh; E. Kalmanovich Conclusion: Even in the hands of cardiologists trained in performing echocardiographic hemodynamic evaluations, the measurement consistency is relatively low. Evaluation done by NICaS provides a much closer result correlation. Monitoring using the NICaS system can give an excellent noninvasive solution for hemodynamic assessment. The abstract can be provided upon […]

Non-Invasive Hemodynamic Whole-Body Bioimpedance Indices for the Early Detection of Cancer Treatment-Related Cardiotoxicity: A Retrospective Observational Study

Authors: Nili Schamroth Pravda, Shaul Lev , Osnat Itzhaki Ben Zadok, Ran Kornowski, Zaza Iakobishvili Conclusion: GGI, a parameter measured by WBI, can reliably correlate to biomarker evidence of heart failure in patients after chemotherapy. Its use as a screening tool for cardiotoxicity in patients with ongoing anticancer therapy is promising. For the full article […]

Non-Invasive hemodynamic monitoring in TAVI-patients reveals more pronounced early in-hospital circulatory recovery for low-gradient aortic stenosis

Authors: Birgit Markus, Holger Ahrens, Bernard Schieffer and more. Conclusion: NICaS monitoring represents an accurate non-invasive bedside tool to discriminate adaptive circulatory changes in subgroups of aortic stenosis patients subjected to TAVI. Hemodynamic parameters recovered more effectively in LG-AS patients after the procedure. Whether a measurement-guided approach might be used for tailored peri-procedural management and […]

Early post-stress decrease in cardiac performance by impedance cardiography and its relationship to the severity and extent of ischemia by myocardial perfusion imaging

Authors: Ronen Goldkorn, Alexey Naimushin, Eli Rozen & Dov Freimark Conclusion: The results of the present study suggest that the immediate post-stress changes in several hemodynamic parameters as detected by the NICaS can be used as an important adjunct to the diagnostic approach for the early detection of myocardial ischemia. These findings can be used […]

Neonatal and Pediatric General and Cardiac Anesthesia and ICU

Bari Pediatric Hospital Experience-Italy Authors: R Beck , L Milella , C Labellarte We compared the NICaS data in double-check with a pediatric algorithm using a CardioQ ultrasonograph cardiac evaluation device (CardioQ, Deltex medical; terminus RD, Chichester P019 8TX; United Kingdom). We noticed that there was a good relation between the comparative data: these first […]

Impedance cardiographt in the evaluation of the hemodynamic profile in dilated cardiopathy

Authors: María Carolina Duarte Martínez, Carlos Andres Peñaherrera, Ernesto Peñaherrera Patiño A cross-sectional study in a public hospital in Ecuador. Chronic arterial hypertension is the main cause of dilated heart disease in our country. These patients have decreased hemodynamic heart pump patterns (systolic dysfunction), and increased total peripheral resistance, as would be expected. Cardio impedance […]
