CorLog and cardiac output

Available data suggest that right ventricular dysfunction seems to be a major determinant of mortality in patients with heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary arterial hypertension. The function of the right ventricle can be measured by the right ventricular pressure (RVP), right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) and also right ventricular stroke volume (RVSV).

Currently we are implementing a novel algorithm to calculate flow waveforms, stroke volume and cardiac output directly from right ventricular pressure waveforms. The algorithm is based on the idea that the pressure difference between isovolumetric and actual pressure is equivalent to the created outflow of the ventricle. We have prepared a whitepaper which describes this method: CorLog_Algorithm_Whitepaper_REV00

Together with our novel algorithm to calculate RVEF we will implement the flow algorithm to CorLog App 2.0. This will enable complete beat-to-beat monitoring of right ventricular function with CorLog.
