Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: To test the accuracy and reproducibility of systemic cardiac output (CO) measurements using surface integration of velocity vectors (SIVV) in a pediatric animal model with hemodynamic instability and to compare SIVV with traditional pulsed-wave Doppler measurements.

DESIGN: Prospective, comparative study.

SETTING: Animal research laboratory at a university medical center.

SUBJECTS: Eight piglets weighing 10-15 kg.

INTERVENTIONS: Hemodynamic instability was induced by using inhalation of isoflurane and infusions of colloid and dobutamine.

MEASUREMENTS: SIVV CO was measured at the left ventricular outflow tract, the aortic valve, and ascending aorta. Transit time CO was used as the reference standard.

RESULTS: There was good agreement between SIVV and transit time CO. At high frame rates, the mean difference +/- 2 SD between the two methods was 0.01+/-0.27 L/min for measurements at the left ventricular outflow tract, 0.08+/-0.26 L/min for the ascending aorta, and 0.06+/-0.25 L/min for the aortic valve. At low frame rates, measurements were 0.06+/-0.25, 0.19+/-0.32, and 0.14+/-0.30 L/min for the left ventricular outflow tract, ascending aorta, and aortic valve, respectively. There were no differences between the three sites at high frame rates. Agreement between pulsed-wave Doppler and transit time CO was poorer, with a mean difference +/- 2 SD of 0.09+/-0.93 L/min. Repeated SIVV measurements taken at a period of relative hemodynamic stability differed by a mean difference +/-2 SD of 0.01+/-0.22 L/min, with a coefficient of variation = 7.6%. Intraobserver coefficients of variation were 5.7%, 4.9%, and 4.1% at the left ventricular outflow tract, ascending aorta, and aortic valve, respectively. Interobserver variability was also small, with a coefficient of variation = 8.5%.

CONCLUSIONS: SIVV is an accurate and reproducible flow measurement technique. It is a considerable improvement over currently used methods and is applicable to pediatric critical care.
