Abstract

Simple postoperative clinical observations of infants and small children are not truly objective or reliable. Direct measurement of cardiac output by means of a thermodilution catheter inserted at the time of operation was used in conjunction with a computer in infants and small children. The technique is simple and can be performed rapidly and repeatedly. The effects of various modes of cardiac stimulation can be assessed, and the optimal method of treatment employed.
