Physiologic Monitor Modules, Cardiac Output

Definition : Modules designed to be used as a component of a physiologic monitor, along with related devices, to acquire, measure, and process information for the purposes of intermittently measuring and/or continuously monitoring cardiac output (the amount of blood pumped out by the ventricles in a given period of time). These modules contain electronic circuits or other technology designed to acquire and/or process a signal from one or more physiologic sensors (e.g., catheter/pressure transducer sets) and transmit it to the physiologic monitor, which contains software to support the module's intended function. Cardiac output modules must be inserted in a dedicated location (e.g., "slot") within a physiologic monitor (e.g., modular or modular/configured bedside or transport monitor) or related device (e.g., module rack) in order to support the desired function. Typical functions of a cardiac output module, when used with a physiologic monitor, include intermittent measurement and/or calculation and display of the cardiac output curve(s), cardiac output index, blood temperature, stroke volume, and systemic vascular resistance. Some modules may provide continuous cardiac output monitoring features, additional intermittent or continuous hemodynamic monitoring features, or other functions, such as measurement of venous oxygen saturation.
