Indirectly, by equating the right cardiac output with the left cardiac output and putting a swan ganz catheter into the pulmonary artery. Or calculating the difference between the arteriol and venous oxygen content; this is called the fick formula.

Thermodiulution uses tempoeratur difficerncess in a swan ganz catheter and calculate co. Additionally co= strove volume x the heart rate.
