Study Start Date: August 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2010
Detailed Description:

This study will record hearing status, by acoustic emission, of critically ill children, treated with different dosages of furosemide drip.

Acoustic emission test will be done prior to therapy and q48 hours during their course of treatment with furosemide drip.

Dosage of furosemide drip, boluses and other relevant medications (i.e - vancomycin, muscular relaxants, aminoglycosides etc) will be recorded.
