BACKGROUND This study evaluated the ability of a non-invasive cardiac output monitoring device (NICOM) to predict fluid responsiveness in paediatric patients undergoing cardiac surgery. METHODS Children aged <5 yr undergoing congenital heart surgery were included. Once the sternum had been closed after repair of the congenital heart defect, 10 ml kg(-1) colloid solution was administered for volume expansion. Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) was performed to measure stroke volume (SV… CONTINUE READING
