Objective:The Ultrasonic Cardiac Output Monitor is a noninvasive method of hemodynamic assessment and monitoring in critically ill patients. There are no published reference ranges for normal values in children for this device. This study aimed to establish normal ranges for cardiovascular indices measured using Ultrasonic Cardiac Output Monitor in children aged 0–12 yrs old and to assess interobserver reliability. Design:This was a population-based cross-sectional observational study. Setting… 
Noninvasive Transcutaneous Doppler Ultrasound–Derived Hemodynamic Reference Ranges in Chinese Adolescents
TLDR
This study presents normal values for cardiovascular indices in Chinese adolescents using the ultrasonic cardiac output monitor, and compares these ranges with a Caucasian group from Australia.
The normal ranges of cardiovascular parameters measured using the ultrasonic cardiac output monitor
TLDR
Complete normal ranges for hemodynamic parameters obtained with USCOM are presented in healthy subjects of all ages from infancy to the elderly, according to age and weight.
Accuracy of the ultrasonic cardiac output monitor in healthy term neonates during postnatal circulatory adaptation.
TLDR
Normal neonatal hemodynamic values, as indicated by USCOM, were established and the progressive rise of arterial pressure and SVRI despite a declining LV-CI may indicate functional closure of the ductus arteriosus.
Ultrasonic cardiac output monitor provides effective non-invasive bedside measurements of neonatal cardiac output
TLDR
There was a very good correlation between the USCOM and echocardiographic methods when the authors used them to measure cardiac output in neonates, with acceptable limits of agreement between these two methods.
Validation of an Ultrasound Cardiac Output Monitor as a Bedside Tool for Pediatric Patients
TLDR
It is found that the estimation of CO and by extension SVRI with USCOM is reliable against pulmonary artery catheter thermodilution in children with normal cardiac anatomy.

TLDR
SV (and thus cardiac output) measured using the USCOM correlated well with echocardiographic cardiac output measurement, which suggests that the US COM could be a valuable haemodynamic tool for assessment of cardiac output and fluid responsiveness in critically ill patients if patients with aortic stenosis are excluded.
Cardiac parameters in children recovered from acute illness as measured by electrical cardiometry and comparisons to the literature
TLDR
There is a curvilinear relationship between CI or SI and age by EC in normal children, and cardiac parameters reported in the literature using alternative methods are different from those obtained with EC but are within acceptable ranges, with EC biased to underestimate CI.
Non-invasive measurement of cardiac output in obese children and adolescents: comparison of electrical cardiometry and transthoracic Doppler echocardiography
TLDR
Compared to the transthoracic Doppler echocardiography, Electrical Cardiometry provides accurate and reliable CO measurements in obese children and adolescents.
Children's Discomfort during Noninvasive Cardiac Output Monitoring by Suprasternal Ultrasonographic Transducer
TLDR
Overall, the pain score associated with USCOM was significantly higher than that associated with BP measurement, however, the difference fails to reach the minimum clinically significant difference of one-point.
Measuring the cardiac output in acute emergency admissions: use of the non-invasive ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) with determination of the learning curve and inter-rater reliability
TLDR
The non-invasive ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) was investigated to determine its learning curve and inter-rater reliability and following a training period of less than 5 h, USCOM stroke volume measurements demonstrated excellent inter- rater reliability.

Cardiac output measurement in children: comparison of the Ultrasound Cardiac Output Monitor with thermodilution cardiac output measurement
TLDR
Cardiac output measurement in children using the USCOM does not reliably represent absolute CO values as compared to PAC thermodilution, and the impact of incorporating effective aortic valve diameters on CO measurement is evaluated.
Inter-Rater Reliability for Noninvasive Measurement of Cardiac Function in Children
TLDR
Transcutaneous Doppler ultrasound technique demonstrates acceptable inter-rater agreement for measuring cardiac index and stroke volume index in children in pediatric emergency department patients.
Non-invasive assessment of cardiac output in children.
TLDR
Suprasternal Doppler ultrasound measurement of stroke distance is a convenient, well tolerated, non-invasive technique for the assessment of cardiac output in children, and the normal range of values during childhood has been established.
Cardiac output measurement in preterm neonates: validation of USCOM against echocardiography
TLDR
Compared 2D echo and USCOM CO measurements in preterm neonates suggest that the USCOM is as accurate for measurement of neonatal CO as conventional echocardiography, and may be a simple cost-effective alternative for neonatal haemodynamic management.
Noninvasive Doppler ultrasonography for assessing cardiac function: can it replace the Swan-Ganz catheter?
TLDR
Doppler UTS correlates well with PAC measurements of CI, and this noninvasive modality is an accurate and safe alternative to PAC.
Review article: Non‐invasive assessment of cardiac output with portable continuous‐wave Doppler ultrasound
TLDR
The ultrasonic cardiac output monitoring device provides a new method of non‐invasively assessing cardiac output in various clinical settings and a critical comparison with the ‘gold standard’, the invasive measurement of cardiac output with the pulmonary artery catheter will be given.
Oscillometrically measured blood pressure in Hong Kong Chinese children and associations with anthropometric parameters
TLDR
The study provides oscillometrically measured BP standards for Chinese children, with age-related and sex-related height-specific and weight-specific percentiles, and Screening by sex-specific BP–height percentile charts, and then if high, reference to the BP–sex–age–weight table, is suggested.
Stroke volume and cardiac output in normotensive children and adults. Assessment of relations with body size and impact of overweight.
TLDR
Indices of SV and cardiac output for BSA are pertinent when the effect of obesity needs to be removed, because these indices obscure the impact of obesity.
Cardiac output measurement in pediatric anesthesia
TLDR
The basic concepts of and rationale for cardiac output monitoring are reviewed, and the techniques available for monitoring in clinical practice are described.
Measurement in Medicine: The Analysis of Method Comparison Studies
TLDR
This paper shall describe what is usually done, show why this is inappropriate, suggest a better approach, and ask why such studies are done so badly.
