Abstract

The hypothetic benefit of CPAP on cardiac performance and on a reduction in V̇O was tested in a patient before heart transplantation after acute myocardial infarction using continuous Sv̄O monitoring. The CPAP added to inotropic support (enoximone plus dobutamine) and intra-aortic balloon pumping dramatically increased Sv̄O in relation to both an increase in cardiac output and a decrease in V̇O secondary to respiratory work reduction, validating the initial hypotheses. 2 2 2 2
