The goal of this study is to compare the time required for accurate heart rate measurement of the preterm newborn when using pulse oximetry versus electrocardiography leads.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||A Comparison of Electrocardiography Versus Pulse Oximetry for Determination of Initial Heart Rate in Preterm Newborns: A Pilot Study.|
Further study details as provided by University of Oklahoma:
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Time until accurate heart rate. [ Time Frame: To be determined ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The elapsed time (in seconds) between application of the specific measuring apparatus (pulse oximeter probe or electrocardiograph leads) and measurement of heart rate.
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Intermeasurement accuracy [ Time Frame: To be determined ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Assessment of the level of accuracy between the two times to be measured.
|Study Start Date:||April 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||April 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Preterm newborn infants thought to be 24-32 weeks gestational age.
Each baby will have both pulse oximetry leads (Massimo Radical 7) and electrocardiography leads (3M™ Red Dot™ Neonatal Limb Band Monitoring Electrodes, Pre-wired) applied. The time required for each modality to register a heart rate will be compared.
