The prognostic ability of cardiac output determined by inert gas rebreathing technique in pulmonary hypertension.
This investigation validated the inert gas rebreathing (IGR) technique and determined IGR prognostic ability compared to invasive cardiac output measurements in patients with pulmonary hypertension. IGR compared with thermodilution cardiac output demonstrated a moderate bias. IGR technique demonstrated long-term prognostic value comparable to invasive cardiac output in pulmonary hypertension patients.
