Conventional measurements of systolic cardiac function and cardiac output may be influenced by loading conditions. The presence of extra-cardiac shunts in the transitional circulation limits the application of such measures in a neonatal population. An accurate method to assess neonatal myocardial function is required that takes account of cardiac loading conditions. One option is to correlate conventional echocardiographic indices with end systolic stress, an index of afterload derived from… CONTINUE READING
