Ambulatory Impedance Cardiography

Gerard Cybulski

Abstract

In this chapter the idea of the impedance cardiography will be presented followed by a description of a central hemodynamics ambulatory monitoring system, available for both research and clinical applications. Basing on the REOMONITOR system, developed in my home institution, the essential parts of the most of the ambulatory systems will be presented. Then will be described other systems used in the cardiology and physiological researches. All of the presented in this chapter systems were verified using the clinically accepted reference methods—non-invasive (ultrasound), invasive or at least, compared against the stationary impedance device Minnesota 304B.
