Thermodilution graph confusion

Hey everyone Sorry for the confusion we created. We rechecked and found that Cardiac output is inversely related to the area under the concentration time graph. So a high cardiac output state will have rapid dilution of the indicator (cold) so a low peak on the graph and a small area under the curve. Sorry for that. Tracy and Marianna
