Cardiac Output Measurement at the Conclusion of Cardiopulmonary Bypass
Cardiac output, the amount of blood pumped by the heart in one minute, will be measured in pediatric patients undergoing surgery involving cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Cardiac output will be measured after cardiopulmonary bypass using a device that employs ultrasound dilution technology. At times, cardiac output will be measured during a procedure called modified ultrafiltration (MUF). The ultrasound dilution cardiac output measurements will be validated or compared with cardiac output measurements made using other FDA approved techniques and devices.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Advanced Cardiac Life Support
The use of sophisticated methods and equipment to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes the use of specialized equipment to maintain the airway, early defibrillation and pharmacological therapy.
Cardiac Output, High
A state of elevated cardiac output due to conditions of either increased hemodynamic demand or reduced cardiac oxygen output. These conditions may include ANEMIA; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; THYROTOXICOSIS; PREGNANCY; EXERCISE; FEVER; and ANOXIA. In time, compensatory changes of the heart can lead to pathological form of high cardiac output and eventual HEART FAILURE.
Cardiac Output, Low
A state of subnormal or depressed cardiac output at rest or during stress. It is a characteristic of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, including congenital, valvular, rheumatic, hypertensive, coronary, and cardiomyopathic. The serious form of low cardiac output is characterized by marked reduction in STROKE VOLUME, and systemic vasoconstriction resulting in cold, pale, and sometimes cyanotic extremities.
Care of patients with deficiencies and abnormalities associated with the cardiopulmonary system. It includes the therapeutic use of medical gases and their administrative apparatus, environmental control systems, humidification, aerosols, ventilatory support, bronchopulmonary drainage and exercise, respiratory rehabilitation, assistance with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and maintenance of natural, artificial, and mechanical airways.
A condition of fainting spells caused by heart block, often an atrioventricular block, that leads to BRADYCARDIA and drop in CARDIAC OUTPUT. When the cardiac output becomes too low, the patient faints (SYNCOPE). In some cases, the syncope attacks are transient and in others cases repetitive and persistent.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new monitor that measures cardiac output (amount of blood pumped by the heart). The system that is being tested in this study, called Endotrachea...
To assess whether a non-invasive cardiac output monitor can follow heart function in children during treatments in the hospital. To establish a normal reference for children who are well...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the continuous availability of minimally invasive cardiac output data during treatment in the intensive care unit (ICU) for hemodynamic instabil...
Accurate cardiac output determination is a commonly used and important index of myocardial performance. The thermodilution method using a pulmonary artery catheter is the most common appro...
Many pediatric patients undergoing cardiac surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass for repair of complex congenital malformations, require inotropic support for low cardiac output syndrome. M...
Background The use of the HeartMate II continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) improves survival, quality of life and functional capacity of patients with advanced heart failure. However...
The ultrasonic cardiac output monitor is a non-invasive, continuous-wave Doppler monitor that can be used to measure cardiac output. Its accuracy and precision in peri-operative and critical care has...
OBJECTIVES: To compare cardiac output (CO) measurements from a novel endotracheal bioimpedance cardiac output monitor device (ECOM; ConMed, Irvine, CA) to simultaneous pulmonary artery thermodilution...
Outcome from in-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is still unsatisfactory. CPR assisted with percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (PCPS) is expected to improve the outcome of in-hospital CP...
