Study of Hemodynamics of Neonates by Echocardiography and USCOM

2014-08-27 03:16:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the hemodynamic values of neonates that are healthy and those with various congenital heart diseases and sepsis by using echocardiography and USCOM.

Description

Echocardiography is a diagnostic tool for congenital heart disease.However,it requires skilled specialists to perform it and is a little expensive.Besides,it is too big to move to the bedside easily.USCOM is another newly choice to evaluate hemodynamic values in recent years.This study will compare the hemodynamic values of neonates that are healthy and those with congenital heart diseases and sepsis by using echocardiography and USCOM.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
