Parameters

Overview

The NICaSTM measures or calculates parameters in four physiological categories:  Cardiac, Vascular, Fluid, and Respiratory.  More specifically, the parameters are:

 

Cardiac

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

 

Vascular

  • Total Pherical Resistance

 

Fluid

  • Total Body Water

 

Respiratory

  • Respiratory Rate

 

These values are summarised in the table below:

Parameter Abbrev Definition Normal Range
Heart Rate HR Number of heart beats each minute 58 - 86 beats per minute
Stroke Volume SV Amount of blood pumped by the left ventricle each minute 60 - 130 millilitres
Stroke Index SI Stroke volume normalised for body surface area  35 - 65 ml/beat/m2 (millilitres per heart beat per metre squared)
Cardiac Output  CO Amount of blood pumped by the left ventricle each minute  4.5 - 8.5 l/min (litres per minute) 
Cardiac Index  CI Cardiac Ouput normalised for body surface area  2.5 - 4.7 l/min/m2 (litres per minute per metre 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 normalised 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
