Table 2 Cardiac chamber measurements obtained by comprehensive echocardiography (CE) and by hand-carried ultrasound (HCU)

From: Hand-carried ultrasound performed at bedside in cardiology inpatient setting – a comparative study with comprehensive echocardiography

Variables CE HCU
Aorta (mm) 28.7 ± 4.1 27.8 ± 4.2
Left atrium (mm) 45.5 ± 7.7 44.0 ± 7.5
LVED (mm) 57.1 ± 11.2 54.9 ± 10.7
LVES (mm) 44.4 ± 15.5 42.8 ± 10.7
IVST (mm) 10.0 ± 2.4 9.4 ± 2.4
PWT (mm) 9.6 ± 1.8 8.7 ± 1.7*
LVEF (%) 47 ± 16 44 ± 15
  1. Data are mean ± SD. IVST = interventricular septal thickness; LVED = left ventricular end-diastolic diameter; LFEF = left ventricular ejection fraction; LVES = left ventricular end-systolic diameter; PWT = posterior wall thickness. * p < 0.05 compared to CE.
