Assessment of portable continuous wave Doppler ultrasound (ultrasonic cardiac output monitor) for cardiac output measurements in neonates
Background and study purpose: The ultrasonic cardiac output monitoring (USCOM, USCOM Pty Ltd, Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia) device provides a new method of non-invasively assessing cardiac output (CO). It has been successfully used in adults, but there have been few studies in neonates. Aims: To study the inter-operator reliability, and to compare the aortic (systemic) CO and pulmonary CO in a neonatal population. Patient and methods: In a study using the USCOM device, we have determined: (i)...[Show more]
