Estimating Stroke Volume & Cardiac Output Based on Doppler Echocardiography

Purpose:

To use results of Doppler Echocardiography to measure cardiac output.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases

Objective:

imaging studies, other testing, criteria for diagnosis

ICD-10:

I00-I99

Description:

The stroke volume of blood pumped into the proximal aorta with each cardiac contraction is equal to the product of the mean systolic velocity and the cross-sectional aortic area. The cardiac output is the heart rate times the stroke volume.
