Table 5 Physiological parameters before and after CA injection

From: Endocardial border delineation capability of a novel multimodal polymer-shelled contrast agent

CA (injected dose) SaO2 Heart rate Mean arterial pressure
(%) (bpm) (mmHg)
SonoVue (1.5 ml) 0% ± 0 0% ± 1 5% ± 9
Polymer-shelled CA (1.5 ml) 0% ± 0 0% ± 2 -2% ± 2
Polymer-shelled CA (3 ml) 0% ± 0 -4% ± 8 -1% ± 4
Polymer-shelled CA (5 ml) 0% ± 0 -2% ± 3 2% ± 3
  1. CA = contrast agent, SaO2 = oxygen saturation. Mean percentage difference ± standard deviation.
