Second, we calculated bias, precision and limits of agreement (Bland-Altman analysis [17, 18]), and the percentage error (PE, defined as two times SD of the bias over the mean TDCO or CCO) as described by L.
Mean NexCO was comparable to mean TDCO (6.1 [+ or -] 2.3 versus 6.6 [+ or -] 2.2L/min, P = 0.10) and to mean CCO (6.1 [+ or -] 2.3 versus 6.4 [+ or -] 2.3L/min, P = 0.30).
Subanalysis for patients with a low MAP, high TDCO, low SVRI, and high dose norepinephrine consistently showed a very good correlation between NexCO and TDCO or CCO.
First, we found moderate to good CO correlation coefficients with TDCO ([R.sup.2] 0.68) and CCO ([R.sup.2] 0.71).
Second, in our study, Nexfin showed to be less reliable in patients with hypothermia and to be completely unreliable in patients with low TDCO and high SVRI (e.g., cardiogenic, obstructive, and hypovolemic shock).
(ii) Nexfin shows a moderate to good cardiac output correlation with transcardiopulmonary thermodilution (TDCO) and continuous pulse contour CO (CCO) obtained by PiCCO in a mixed ICU population although the obtained percentage error was too high to allow full interchangeability.
(iii) Changes in NexCO correlate well with changes in TDCO and CCO although the obtained concordance coefficient was too high to allow full trending interchangeability.
Cerbo said the movement of key PNP officials had eased Espina's workload since he used to perform the functions of TDCA, TDCO and PNP OIC since Purisima was preventively suspended over corruption allegations.
With the entry of Garbo as TDCO and Constantino as TCDS, tatlo na silang makakapagtulungan.
