One hundred and twenty ventilated preterm infants, birthweight < 1500 g, were examined within the first 36 hours with colour Doppler echocardiography, to determine the cardiorespiratory influences on right (RVO) and left ventricular output (LVO). Forty nine of these infants had three further daily scans. Measurements included left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction, Doppler determination of RVO and LVO, and ductal and interatrial shunt direction, velocity and colour Doppler diameter. Infants… CONTINUE READING
