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.

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...
We would like to study cardiac output, stroke volume, and fluid responsiveness on young adult pediatric patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery with the use of the NICOM, a non-invasive...
The aim of the present study is to compare accuracy and precision of Cardiac Output (CO) by nine different pulse contour algorithms with transpulmonary thermodilution before and after card...
To compare the less invasive Oesophageal Doppler cardiac output Monitor (ODM) to the invasive (standard of care) Transpulmonary Thermodilution cardiac output monitor (TPTD) in children.
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 ...
Acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Methods for measuring urine output in real time may better ensure renal perfusion perioperatively in con...
Peak systolic global longitudinal strain (GLS) is increasingly used to quantify left ventricular systolic function. The primary objective of this study was to assess whether GLS obtained during intrao...
Although clinical and pharmacologic guidelines exist for the practice of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in children (Pediatric Advanced Life Support), the practice of extracorporeal cardiopulmonary res...
Major advances have been made in mechanical circulatory support in recent years. Venoarterial (VA) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) provides both pulmonary and circulatory support for critic...
Extracorporeal life support is a modified form of cardiopulmonary bypass. Experience in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has come largely from the neonatal population. Most centers have tran...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
