congenital heart disease
Neonates that are enrolled in the NICU and are confirmed of congenital heart diseases.
Neonates that are enrolled in the NICU and are diagnosed as sepsis.
Neonates that are enrolled in the NICU and have no congenital heart diseases and sepsis.
Echocardiography is a diagnostic tool for congenital heart disease.However,it requires skilled specialists to perform it and is a little expensive.Besides,it is too big to move to the bedside easily.USCOM is another newly choice to evaluate hemodynamic values in recent years.This study will compare the hemodynamic values of neonates that are healthy and those with congenital heart diseases and sepsis by using echocardiography and USCOM.
