Objective: To assess cardiac output in pediatric patients with the pressure recording analytical method (PRAM) and the Doppler echocardiography method. PRAM derives cardiac output from beat-by-beat analysis of the arterial pressure profile (systolic and diastolic phase) in the time domain. Design: A prospective observational study. Setting: Pediatric intensive care unit at a tertiary care children’s hospital. Patients: Forty-eight patients between the ages of 1 month and 18 yrs. Interventions… Expand
Cardiac index assessment by the pressure recording analytic method in critically ill unstable patients after cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Cardiac index measurements after cardiac surgery performed with the Pressure Recording Analytic Method and with the reference method of thermodilution showed a good agreement in hemodynamically unstable patients given high doses of inotropes and/or an IABP in patients in sinus rhythm, but not in those with atrial fibrillation.

Cardiac Output Measurement With Echocardiography and Pressure Recording Analytical Method in Pediatric Patients Admitted to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit: A Retrospective Assessment of Bias Between the Two Methods.
TLDR
Children with extreme low or high weights, those who are extubated, and those with a femoral cannula carry the highest bias, and when younger patients are considered, CI should be evaluated instead of CO, because biases are better highlighted by indexing data on body surface area. Expand
Comparison Between Doppler-Echocardiography and Uncalibrated Pulse Contour Method for Cardiac Output Measurement: A Multicenter Observational Study*
TLDR
The results suggest that MostCare could be an alternative to echocardiography to assess cardiac output in ICU patients with a large spectrum of clinical conditions. Expand
Pressure recording analytical method for measuring cardiac output in critically ill children: a validation study.
TLDR
There is an unacceptably poor agreement between UD and PRAM, and the use of PRAM for measuring CO in critically ill children with the current algorithm is recommended. Expand
Measurement of Cardiac Output in Children by Pressure-Recording Analytical Method
TLDR
A high percentage of CI measurements registered byPRAM were outside normal limits in hemodynamically stable, critically ill children, and CI measured by PRAM may be influenced by the age, weight, location of catheter, and presence of a dicrotic notch. Expand
Assessment of cardiac function in infants with transposition of the great arteries after surgery: comparison of two methods
TLDR
In the early post-operative period, PRAM provides reliable estimates of cardiac index and dp/dt(max) value compared with echocardiographic measurements, and is a reliable continuous monitoring method for peri-operative management in children with congenital heart disease. Expand
Cardiac output measurement in children: what is lacking?
  • R. Ronco, C. Riquelme
  • Medicine
  • Pediatric critical care medicine : a journal of the Society of Critical Care Medicine and the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies
  • 2008
TLDR
The use of the pressure recording analytical method (PRAM) for CO assessment in children and a significant agreement is found using the Bland-Altman test for CO assessed with PRAM and that with Doppler echocardiography, which has not been established as the gold standard for CO in children. Expand
Ultrasound dilution: An accurate means of determining cardiac output in children*
TLDR
The ultrasound dilution technique of determining cardiac output using the COstatus system provides a less invasive method than the traditional pulmonary artery thermodilution for accurately determining cardiacoutput in children, and is the first validation of the CO status system in pediatric patients. Expand
Continuous arterial pressure waveform monitoring in pediatric cardiac transplant, cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension patients
TLDR
There was poor agreement between the PAC and FloTrac™ in measuring cardiac output in a population of children with pulmonary hypertension or cardiomyopathy, or after cardiac transplantation, which suggests that the utility of the Flo Trac and measurements obtained from arterial pulse wave analysis in children is uncertain at this time. Expand
Echocardiography and pulse contour analysis to assess cardiac output in trauma patients.
TLDR
CO measured by MostCare showed good agreement with CO obtained by transthoracic echocardiography, indicating that Pulse contour analysis can complement echOCardiography in evaluating hemodynamics in trauma patients. Expand

Doppler determination of cardiac output in infants and children: Comparison with simultaneous thermodilution
TLDR
There was a good correlation between the results of the thermodilution and cardiac output measurements, when cardiac output was normalized for body size, and when internal systolic aortic root diameter was combined with mean velocity. Expand
Noninvasive pulsed Doppler determination of cardiac output in neonates and children.
TLDR
The Doppler technique is a quick, noninvasive, and accurate method of determining ascending aortic blood flow in neonates and children. Expand

TLDR
PCO measurement compared well with the lithium dilution method and can be considered an accurate technique for measuring beat-to-beat CO with limited risk to the patient. Expand
Cardiac output monitoring by pressure recording analytical method in cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Under the studied conditions, good agreement between PRAM data and ThD measurements is demonstrated, and this new method has shown to be accurate for real-time monitoring of cardiac output in cardiac surgery. Expand
Assessment of cardiac output from systemic arterial pressure in humans
TLDR
In the range evaluated (cardiac index from 1.65 to 3.91 L·min−1·m−2 by the Fick method), PRAM provides reliable invasive and noninvasive estimates of cardiac output in hemodynamically stable cardiac patients and may prove clinically useful for the beat-to-beat monitoring of heart output. Expand
The effects of sampling site on the two-dimensional echo-Doppler determination of cardiac output.
TLDR
Cardiac output can be measured with reasonable accuracy by Doppler from a variety of sampling sites and averaging of data from more than one site may improve these results. Expand
Cardiac output by pulsed Doppler in neonates using the apical window
TLDR
In 18 healthy neonates, cardiac output was measured by range-gated Doppler echocardiography with simultaneous two-dimensional echOCardiography, using the apical approach, and Maximal flow velocities in the ascending aorta came closest to published data obtained by invasive and noninvasive methods.

In a porcine model, PRAM is a reliable tool to detect changes in cardiac output in pigs and has ability as a basic research tool and is demonstrated accuracy during various haemodynamic states. Expand
Clinicians’ abilities to estimate cardiac index in ventilated children and infants
TLDR
Assuming that objective measurement, and hence manipulation, of haemodynamic variables may improve outcome, these findings support the need for a safe, accurate, and repeatable technique for measurement of cardiac index in children who are critically ill. Expand

TLDR
The bias, precision, and repeatability from study to study indicate that Doppler CO measurements are acceptably reproducible in children, with best results when used to track changes rather than absolute values, and using the transesophageal approach. Expand
