Figure 5

Correlation analyses of systemic and microcirculatory flow variables. Data represent percentage changes in cardiac index (dCI) and systemic oxygen delivery index (dDO2I) plotted against percentage changes in microvascular flow indices of medium (dMFIm) and small (dMFIs) vessels within each group. Solid and dashed lines represent regression lines for levosimendan and control, respectively. CI, cardiac index; DO2I, systemic oxygen delivery index; MFIm, microvascular flow index of medium vessels ( 20 to 50 μm); MFIs, microvascular flow index of small vessels ( <20 μm).
