Abstract

In women with preeclampsia the esophageal Doppler monitor consistently underestimated cardiac output by approximately 40%. It is not known whether the apparent increase in accuracy among the women >40 years old arose by chance or reflected a real improvement in performance. The esophageal Doppler monitor accurately reflected the direction and magnitude of the changes in cardiac output with time.
