The aim was to assess myocardial contractility in infants born <30 wk gestation developing low systemic blood flow (SBF) in the first day, and the effect of dobutamine versus dopamine. Superior vena cava (SVC) flow was used as a measure of SBF at 3, 10, and 24 h (n = 106). Infants with low SVC flow randomized to dopamine or dobutamine. Myocardial contractility was determined by the relationship between left ventricular (LV) mean velocity of circumferential fiber shortening (mVcfs) and wall… CONTINUE READING
