|Title:||A meta-analysis of the accuracy and precision of the ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM).||Austin Authors:||Chong, S W;Peyton, Philip J||Affiliation:||Department of Anaesthesia, Austin Hospital, Melbourne, Australia||Issue Date:||29-Aug-2012||Publication information:||Anaesthesia 2012; 67(11): 1266-71||Abstract:||The ultrasonic cardiac output monitor is a non-invasive, continuous-wave Doppler monitor that can be used to measure cardiac output. Its accuracy and precision in peri-operative and critical care has been assessed with varied results. We conducted a meta-analysis to calculate a pooled mean bias, precision and percentage error for this device. Six studies were suitable for inclusion into a pooled parametric analysis consisting of 320 measurements. The mean weighted bias was -0.39 l.min(-1) (95% CI -0.25 to -0.53 l.min(-1) ), precision 1.27 l.min(-1) and percentage error 42.7% (95% CI 38.5-46.9%). The ultrasonic cardiac output monitor achieved similar agreement with bolus thermodilution to that of other minimally invasive methods of peri-operative cardiac output monitoring, and may have a useful role in cardiac output monitoring.||Gov't Doc #:||22928650||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/11552||DOI:||10.1111/j.1365-2044.2012.07311.x||Journal:||Anaesthesia||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22928650||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Cardiac Output
