Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare the accuracy and precision of two non-invasive methods of measuring cardiac output in critically ill children (<18 yrs). The participants will include any patient admitted to Pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) requiring a trans-thoracic ECHO (TTE) as part of their treatment plan. Measurements of intermittent cardiac output will be obtained and compared on participants using standard 2-D TTE and Ultrasound Cardiac Output Monitor (USCOM).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Critical Illness Pediatrics Device: Ultrasonic Cardiac Output Monitor (USCOM).
