ABSITE REVIEW QUESTIONS: CARDIAC OUTPUT AND CARDIAC INDEX

 

QUESTION: What is the difference between cardiac output and cardiac index? (write down equations).

.

.

.

.

ANSWER:

– The equation for the cardiac output is CO = SV X SR.

– The equation for the cardiac index is CI = CO / BSA

– [Cl = CO/BSA; CO=SV X HR; therefore, CI = (SV X HR)/BSA]

– The cardiac index is computed by dividing the cardiac output by the body surface area.
