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).
