Parameters

 
 Overzicht

De NICaSTM meet en betekend parameters in vier fisiologische categorieën:  Cardiac, Vascular, Fluid en Respiratory.  

Meer specifiek zijn de parameters: 

  Cardiac

  • Heart Rate
  • Stroke Volume / Stroke Index
  • Cardiac Output / Cardiac Index
  • Cardiac Power Index
  • Granov-Goor Index

  Vascular

  • Total Peripheral Resistance / Total Peripheral Resistance Index

♥  Fluid

  • Total Body Water

♥  Respiratory

  • Respiratory Rate
 Deze parameters zijn samengevat in tabel 1.

Definition

Normal Range

Heart Rate 

HR   Number of heart beats each minute 58 - 86 bpm (beats per minute)

Stroke Volume 

SV   Amount of blood pumped by the left ventricle each heartbeat  60 - 130 ml (milliliters)
Stroke Index  SI  Stroke volume normalized for body surface area  35 - 65 ml/beat/m2(milliliters per heart beat per meter squared)
Cardiac Output  CO  Amount of blood pumped by the left ventricle each minute  4.5 – 8.5 l/min (liters per minute)
Cardiac Index  CI  Cardiac Output normalized for body surface area  2.5 - 4.7 l/min/m2(liters per minute per meter squared)
Cardiac Power Index  CPI  An indicator of myocardial contractility   0.45 - 1.0 w/m2
Granov Goor Index  GGI  An indicator of Left Ventricular Function, which is strongly related to Ejection Fraction  > 10.0 (equals an Ejection Fraction > 55%)
Total Peripheral Resistance  TPR  The resistance to the flow of blood in the arterial system (often referred to as “Afterload”)  770 - 1500 dynes·s·cm-5 
Total Peripheral Resistance Index  TPRI  The resistance to the flow of blood in the arterial system normalized for body surface area   1540 - 3000 dynes·s·cm-5/ m2
Total Body Water  TBW  The amount of extracellular fluid in % or kilograms  40.0 – 63.0%  
Respiration Rate  RR  Number of breaths each minute  8 – 24 breaths / minute
