Validation of Electrical Cardiometry Versus Fick Method in Cardiac Output Measurement

Active, not recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The investigators would like to find out if AESCULONĀ®, a new device that non-invasively and continuously measures cardiac output using electrical cardiometry, works as well as one existing method--Fick method in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary exercise testing.


Trial Design

  • Perspective: Prospective
  • Sampling: Non-Probability Sample

Trial Population

Adult patients of 18 years or older who undergo cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) with invasive hemodynamic monitoring for their routine care.
