To investigate whether respiratory variations in aortic blood flow velocity (ΔVpeak ao), systolic arterial pressure (ΔPS) and pulse pressure (ΔPP) could accurately predict fluid responsiveness in ventilated children. Prospective study in a 18-bed pediatric intensive care unit. Twenty-six children [median age 28.5 (16–44) months] with preserved left ventricular (LV) function. Standardized volume expansion (VE). Analysis of aortic blood flow by transthoracic pulsed-Doppler allowed LV stroke… CONTINUE READING
