Summary of "Chest electrical impedance tomography measures in neonatology and paediatrics - a survey on clinical usefulness."

Chest electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is currently applied in neonatal and paediatric patients mainly within clinical studies. The findings of these studies imply that lung monitoring using EIT provides valuable information on regional lung ventilation and aeration at the bedside that might improve the therapy and care of this fragile patient population. In view of this postulated future use of EIT in neonatology and paediatrics we have conducted an international survey to assess the perceived usefulness of several measures derived from EIT examinations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Recording changes in electrical impedance between electrodes placed on opposite sides of a part of the body, as a measure of volume changes in the path of the current. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).

A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.

The resistance to the flow of either alternating or direct electrical current.

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
