Figure 1

CEDV assessment. Shown is a modified algorithm block diagram for continuous right ventricular end-diastolic volume (CEDV) assessment. CCO = continuous cardiac output; CEDV = continuous right ventricular end-diastolic volume; HR = heart rate; PRBS = Pseudo-Random Binary Sequence; REF = right ventricular ejection fraction; τ = exponential decay time constant.
