Comprehensive picture of hemodynamics

Hemodynamic Differential Diagnosis and Therapy

Electrical Cardiometry™ is a method for continuous non-invasive determination of a wide range of hemodynamic parameters, including estimates for blood flow, fluid status, contractility, systemic vascular resistance and oxygenation. Electrical Cardiometry™ allows to capture a comprehensive picture of the hemodynamic circulatory system, allowing differential diagnosis for a patient management specifically tailored to the patient’s needs. Electrical Cardiometry™ supports the physician to find a balance of volume management, and cardio-vascular management, ad hoc and during the course of treatment.

Blood Flow:

Blood Flow:

  • Stroke volume (SV) or its index * (SI),
  • Cardiac output (CO) or its index * (CI),
  • Heart rate (HR)
Fluid Status:

Fluid Status:

  • Stroke volume variation (SVV),
  • Corrected flow time (FTc),
  • Thoracic fluid content (TFC)
Contractility and Cardiac Function:

Contractility and Cardiac Function:

  • Contractility index (ICON),
  • Systolic time ratio (STR),
  • Pre-ejection period (PEP),
  • Left ventricular ejection time (LVET)
  • Cardiac Performance Index (CPI)
  • Variation in contractility (VIC)
Vascular Resistance:

Vascular Resistance:

  • Systemic vascular resistance (SVR) and its index * (SVRI)

(ICON®, ICONCore® after input of blood pressure)

Blood Pressure:

Blood Pressure:

  • Mean arterial pressure (MAP),
  • Systolic arterial pressure (SBP),
  • Diastolic arterial pressure (DBP)

(only AESCULON®)



  • Supplied oxygen or its index * (DO2 / DO2I),
  • Blood oxygen saturation (SpO2),
  • Hemoglobin content (Hb)

(only AESCULON®, ICON® and ICONCore® after specifying SpO2 and Hb)

(* Indices can be related to body surface or weight)
