In brief: The old way was

Based on oxygen differences from artery to vein called the fick procedure.
Then came "thermal dilution", now we can do it by echo. Just plug "cardaic output" into google to learn more. www.thepmc.org.

In brief: Adrenaline

Cardiac output (co) is stroke volume (sv) times heart rate (hr) and adrenaline increases both sv and hr.
