Non-Invasive Measurement Of Cardiac Output By Inert Gas Rebreathing
Cardiac Output (CO) is an important parameter for the assessment of hemodynamic and cardiovascular impairment. Innocor® CO allows for non-invasive measurement of CO by employing the analytical principle of Inert Gas Rebreathing (IGR). The simplicity of the test manoeuvre together with the specifically designed patient and software interface makes the test suitable for both adults and children at rest and during exercise. Innocor® CO utilizes a fast-responding photoacoustic infrared gas analyser with unmatched sensitivity, accuracy and stability and is validated in an impressive number of papers covering diverse conditions in health and disease, children and adults, rest and exercise.
Quick measurement (~30 seconds). The test is rapid as it takes less than 30 seconds, the time for a subject to breathe normally for about 5-6 breaths.
Suitable in children and adults at rest and during exercise. The simplicity of the test manoeuvre together with the intuitive software interface makes the test suitable for both adults and children at rest and during exercise.
Compact and portable design. The reduced dimensions and the integration of the miniature gas cylinder allow to easily move Innocor® CO in between departments.
Optional metabolic gas exchange (VO₂, VCO₂, ...) and lung function testing. Cardiac output and metabolic measurements can be combined during cardiopulmonary exercise test thanks to the optional breath-by-breath gas exchange analysis module.
Daily calibration not required. Innocor® CO utilizes a fast-responding photoacoustic infrared gas analyser with unmatched sensitivity, accuracy and stability which only requires a yearly calibration check.
Validated over multiple testing conditions. Innocor® CO is validated in an impressive number of papers covering diverse conditions in health and disease, children and adults, rest and exercise.
