Abstract

Head trauma is the main cause of death in children under the age of two in the Western world; the high mortality rate is due to many factors, amongst which is a change in the systolic function which determines the lack of haemodynamic stability of children with serious head injury. Aim of the study: we studied the haemodynamic variations in children with severe head trauma, using the PiCCO® system (Pulsion PiCCO® Contour Cardiac Output), on their first day of admission to the Pediatri Intensive Care Unit (PICU), comparing the haemodynamic data with a control group. Methods: group A, aged 11 months-16 years of age, with severe head injury (GCS-1_/kg/min, midazolam 0.03-0.lmg/ kg/h); curarization by vecuronium bromide. Inclusion criteria: head trauma with GCS<8. Exclusion criteria for both groups were: septic, cardiac, haemorrhagic, and spinal shock, haemodynamic instability, renal failure and chronic respiratory failure. Monitoring standard by PiCCO®. Statistical analysis: Mean and Standard Deviation (SD) of the revealed parameters. Every parameter was inserted into an analysis model for the calculation of Pearson's correlation coefficient. T test was performed (p
