BACKGROUND: Perfusion index (PI) is a noninvasive measure of perfusion. ΔPI (difference between pre and post-ductal PI) may identify hemodynamically significant PDA. However, studies are limited to brief and intermittent ΔPI sampling. Our objective is to assess the value of continuous high resolution ΔPI monitoring in the diagnosis of PDA. METHODS: Continuous ΔPI monitoring in preterm infants was prospectively performed using two high resolution pulse oximeters...

Targeted echocardiography has been promoted by neonatologists in recent years but some aspects of its efficacy remain unexplored. We carried out a survey among trainees of targeted echocardiography courses in order to describe their professional characteristics and abilities. Thirty-eight former trainees were included in the survey. Seventy-six percent were experienced neonatologists and 84% practiced other bedside ultrasound diagnostics. Respondents practiced all major indications of targeted echocardiography, with a variable degree of interaction with available Cardiology services...

A previously healthy 14-year-old girl presented to the emergency department with a 3-day history of upper respiratory symptoms and 2 syncopal episodes. She was initially febrile, tachycardic, and tachypneic; the initial electrocardiogram showed diffuse T-wave inversions and right atrial enlargement. There was no pericardial effusion on bedside and formal echocardiography; the latter, however, revealed a hyperechogenic pericardium. A viral swab was positive for influenza B. Treatment with intravenous rehydration and ibuprofen was started with good response...

Lesions of the heart valves are the commonest acquired cardiac abnormalities seen in pediatric age group. In India, the underlying cause for most valvular diseases is chronic rheumatic heart disease (RHD). The aim of evaluation of patients with valvular heart disease is not only to make a diagnosis, but also to decide the management plan. The pediatrician or physician is usually the first health care provider to whom such patients (or their parents) report. It is therefore imperative that the general physician and pediatricians are well versed with valvular heart diseases...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas rarely occur in children or adolescents. In addition, it is even more rare for the adolescent patient to present with neurological symptoms only. Early diagnosis is difficult because the symptoms of left atrial myxoma are frequently nonspecific. If delayed or left undiagnosed, severe and fatal complications, such as systemic embolism, heart failure, and pulmonary hypertension, may occur. CASE REPORT: A 13-year-old girl was admitted to our resuscitation room because of loss of consciousness for the preceding 2 h; she had a longstanding history of headache and dizziness for the previous 18 months...

Adult patient series have shown hand-held echocardiography (echo) units (HHE) to be accurate for rapid diagnosis and triage. This is the first study to evaluate the ability of HHE to inform decision making in outpatient pediatric cardiology. New pediatric cardiology patients in outpatient clinics staffed by six pediatric cardiologists (experience 1-17 years) were prospectively enrolled if an echocardiogram (echo) was ordered during their initial visit. After history and physical examination and before a standard echo, the cardiologists performed a bedside HHE examination (GE Vscan 1...

Postoperative care of cardiac patients requires a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to critically ill patients with cardiac disease whose care requires a clear understanding of cardiovascular physiology. When a patient fails to progress along the projected course or decompensates acutely, prompt evaluation with bedside assessment, laboratory evaluation, and echocardiography is essential. When things do not add up, cardiac catheterization must be seriously considered. With continued advancements in the field of neonatal and pediatric postoperative cardiac care, continued improvements in overall outcomes for this specialized population are anticipated...

This article reviews potential pediatric applications of 3 new technologies. (1) Pulse oximetry-based hemoglobin determination: Hemoglobin determination using spectrophotometric methods recently has been introduced in adults with varied success. This non-invasive and continuous technology may avoid venipuncture and unnecessary transfusion in children undergoing surgery with major blood loss, premature infants undergoing unexpected and complicated emergency surgery, and children with chronic illness. (2) Continuous cardiac output monitoring: In adults, advanced hemodynamic monitoring such as continuous cardiac output monitoring has been associated with better surgical outcomes...

Heart failure as a result of cardiomyopathy is an uncommon presentation in the pediatric emergency department (PED). The initial presenting symptoms in these cases are often nonspecific and may be confused with more common pediatric illnesses. We report a case of a 3-year-old girl initially discharged from a PED after routine evaluation of vomiting and diarrhea with a diagnosis of acute gastroenteritis only to return 1 week later in heart failure from a dilated cardiomyopathy. A bedside ultrasound performed by the emergency physician in the PED allowed for the initiation of appropriate, rapid, goal-directed therapy and expedited timely transport to a facility with pediatric cardiothoracic surgery...

Both systolic and diastolic dysfunction in the pediatric population can be identified by bedside echocardiography and can guide therapy and evaluate response to therapy. Isolated diastolic dysfunction is rare in children; however many conditions can lead to systolic dysfunction. In this review various echocardiographic techniques to evaluate both systolic and diastolic function as well as etiologies of systolic and diastolic dysfunction seen in the intensive care setting are discussed.

Bedside emergency ultrasound has rapidly developed over the past several years and has now become part of the standard of care for several applications. While it has only recently been applied to critically ill pediatric patients, several of the well-established adult indications may be applied to pediatric patients. One of the most important and life-saving applications is bedside echocardiography. While bedside emergency ultrasonography does not serve to replace formal comprehensive studies, it serves as an extension of the physical examination...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether hand-carried ultrasound technology may be valuable in the assessment of children with acute malaria. Every year, approximately 800,000 children under the age of 5 yrs die of complications of Plasmodium falciparum malaria infection. The advent of hand-carried ultrasound technology has made diagnostic ultrasonography possible in underresourced settings. DESIGN: We performed a pilot observational study collecting clinical data and performing ultrasound examinations on children diagnosed with P...

Functional echocardiography (fECHO) is the bedside use of ultrasound to longitudinally assess myocardial function, systemic and pulmonary blood flow, and intra and extracardiac shunts. This review will focus on fECHO as a tool for the clinician to assess the hemodynamic condition of sick neonates and describe situations where fECHO can help determine a pathophysiological choice for cardiovascular support. The very low birth weight infant with hypotension during the first 24h of life, assessment and monitoring of the ductus arteriosus, assessment and response to treatment of infants with pulmonary hypertension, the infant with perinatal asphyxia and the infant with sepsis and cardiovascular compromise are reviewed...
