Cardiac Output measurement by Inert Gas Rebreathing (IGR)

Inert Gas Rebreathing (IGR) method The IGR method is based on the principle that the flow of blood through the lungs (pulmonary blood flow) is proportional to the wash-out rate of a gas that is soluble in blood and that is absorbed during breathing by the pulmonary alveoli. Pulmonary shunt If the patient has an intrapulmonary shunt, the percentage shunt flow will be calculated on the basis of the Fick principle for oxygen, stated in % and the pulmonary blood flow to [...]
