TABLE 1 Glossary of physiological terms Term Description Cardiac preload Describes the relationship between the length of cardiac muscle fibres at the onset of contraction (end-diastolic volume) and the resultant force of contraction (8).
In contrast to pulmonary-artery occlusion pressure derived from pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) measurements, ITBV(1) is seen as a reliable indicator of cardiac preload in critically ill patients.
For ventilated patients, the cardiac preload information is independent of the ventilator settings and respiratory cycle.
These volumes are better indicators of cardiac preload; however, not all low cardiac preloads imply that fluid loading will be beneficial, so dynamic measurements have been recommended.
Of 263 patients who presented to the emergency department, 130 were randomly assigned to 6 hours of early goal-directed therapy-a resuscitation strategy including manipulation of cardiac preload, afterload, and contractility to restore a balance between oxygen delivery and demand and to prevent cardiac collapse.
The ClariTEE is a single use device that can remain indwelling for up to 72 hours, allowing intensivists and anesthesiologists to periodically assess cardiac preload and left ventricular systolic function over a prolonged period of time.
CardioQ, including measure of descending aortic flow HemoSonic cardiac preload as a proportion of total cardiac output Some evidence to Small window for support oesophageal acoustic signal may Doppler-guided therapy require frequent in improving surrogate repositioning perioperative outcomes (19) Data on accuracy and precision compared with pulmonary artery catheter thermodilution generally limited to small studies and variable dependent on population studied and methodology used.
Building on previous publications showing that TRV027 has beneficial hemodynamic and renal effects in a canine model of heart failure, this new publication shows that when TRV027 is co-administered with furosemide, it reduces cardiac preload and afterload, while preserving the natriuretic and diuretic effects of furosemide, and protecting renal function.
