Disclaimer Despite an intense effort to find less invasive ways to measure cardiac output, there is NO data that conclusively proves that PA catheters harm patients. There is NO data to suggest that care is improved or outcomes differ with the utilization of monitors that assess cardiac function.

The relationship of The relationship of Pulse Pressure to Stroke Volume Pulse Pressure to Stroke Volume CO = SV x HR Aortic pulse pressure is proportional to SV and is inversely related to aortic compliance. If Compliance (and resistance) is constant a bigger SV will mean a greater PP.
