Presently there is no apparatus, clinically available, for routine determination of cardiac output (CO) in children. The goal of this research is to develop new technology that will help determine CO in neonates.

Condition Intervention
Neonatal Intensive Care
Device: COstatus cardiac output measurement with isotonic saline

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Estimation of Cardiac Output in Neonatal ICU Using an Ultrasound Dilution Technique

Further study details as provided by Transonic Systems Inc.:

Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: March 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: COstatus cardiac output measurement with isotonic saline

    Isotonic saline, which is the indicator, is injected to obtain COstatus cardiac output measurements.

    No other interventions are made for the purpose of the study.
