Abstract

Although there are various causes of multiple organ failure (MOF), low cardiac output syndrome (LOS) is the major cause after open-heart surgery. The hemodynamic situation is unstable, and LOS frequently occurs soon after cardiac surgery. Therefore, it would be helpful if LOS could be predicted beforehand. Once LOS occurs, early diagnosis of its cause is indispensable to adequate treatment. We examined the above two points using echocardiography.
