Abstract

Impedance cardiography is a non-invasive technique for measuring cardiac output and for diagnosing cardiac disorders. During systol, blood is pumped into the thoracic region which changes its basal impedance. High frequency (20 – 100 kHz) current (3 – 10 mA) is injected into the thoracic region through electrodes and the impedance change is sensed, by measuring the voltage through another set of electrodes. The impedance variation is known as impedance cardiogram (ICG) and can be used for estimating stroke volume by using appropriate models of blood flow and can also be used for diagnostic information.

Impedance cardiography R&D involves instrumentation development, study of electrode configurations, model development and validation through clinical trials. We have developed a thoracic impedance simulator for comprehensive testing and calibration of an impedance cardiograph. It has the facility for varying the beat rate, magnitude of common and differential mode ECG signals and a fixed percentage variation in the thoracic impedance as a square wave. Option for feeding external pickups is also incorporated.

Impedance Cardiography

• A non-invasive technique for measuring cardiac output and for diagnosing cardiac disorders.

• Senses variation in thoracic impedance caused by blood pumped during systol.

• High frequency (20 – 100 kHz) current (3 – 10 mA) injected, resulting voltage sensed using 4-electrode configuration, and the detected impedance variation (< 2% of basal impedance), known as impedance cardiogram (ICG), used for estimating stroke volume & diagnostic information.

Impedance Simulator Model

I1, I2 : Current exc. electrodes

E1, E2 : Voltage sens. electrodes

Re’s : Contact resistance

Rs1, Rs2 : Exc. path fixed

resistance

Ed : Diff. mode ECG

Ec : Com. mode ECG

Ep : Ext. pickup

Rp : Pickup resistance

Ro, Rs : Parallel column model

resistance

slide10

Model Relations

R1 = Rs1 + Re1 R2 = Re2

R3 = Re3 R4 = Re4 + Rs2

Ry1´ = Ry1 || ( Rz + ( Ry2 || Rx2 ) )

Ry2´ = Ry2 || ( Rz + ( Ry1 || Rx1 ) )

V1 = Ex1 [ Ry1´ / ( Rx1 + Ry1´ ) ] = Ec + Ed / 2

V2 = Ex2 [ Ry2´ / ( Rx2 + Ry2´ ) ] = Ec - Ed / 2

Ra = Rb = Rs / 2

Rz = Ro
