Impedance cardiography revisited (comparison to Thoracic Impedance)
.

The study shows that if the electrodes are placed on one wrist and on a contralateral ankle instead of on the chest, a configuration designated as regional impedance cardiography (RIC), the 2SD limit of agreement between RIC and TD is +/-1.0 l min(-1), approximately 20% disparity between the two methods.
