Non-invasive Cardiac Output Monitor in Young Adults (NICOM)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02813915
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
The investigators would like to study cardiac output, stroke volume, and fluid responsiveness on young adult pediatric patients undergoing anesthesia and surgery with the use of the NICOM, a non-invasive monitor. The NICOM method is non-invasive and provides reliable trending of cardiac output and stroke volume. Measuring cardiac output in conjunction with routine monitoring will provide a better assessment of intra-operative status.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Fluid Overload Hypovolemia Device: NICOM

Detailed Description:
This study will involve measurements of cardiac output, stroke volume, and fluid responsiveness (change in stroke volume of ≥ 10%) obtained via passive leg raise (PLR) before and after anesthesia induction.

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 50 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Trial of a Non-Invasive Cardiac Output in Young Adults
Study Start Date : July 17, 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : July 21, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : March 1, 2018

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Use of Cheetah medical NICOM
For those who consent to the study, the Cheetah NICOM will be used to obtain cardiac output, stroke volume, and fluid responsiveness.
Device: NICOM
Use of NICOM and PLR to obtain patient fluid status

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Patient Fluid responsiveness [ Time Frame: within 30 minutes post-anesthesia induction ]
    If patient is fluid responsive, Stroke Volume Index (SVI) will increase by 10% or greater compared to its baseline
