|Official Title:||A Comparison of Electrocardiography Versus Pulse Oximetry for Determination of Initial Heart Rate in Preterm Newborns: A Pilot Study.|
|Study Start Date :||April 2011|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||April 2011|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||April 2011|
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.
- Time until accurate heart rate. [ Time Frame: To be determined ]The elapsed time (in seconds) between application of the specific measuring apparatus (pulse oximeter probe or electrocardiograph leads) and measurement of heart rate.
- Intermeasurement accuracy [ Time Frame: To be determined ]Assessment of the level of accuracy between the two times to be measured.
