  5. 5. How does it work? Fd= 2Ft x V x cosθ C Fd Doppler frequency Ft Transmitted frequency V Velocity of blood θ Angle between beam and blood flow C Velocity of sound in soft tissue (constant)
  6. 6. USCOM looks at flow through valves Different waveform from desc. aorta Velocity-time integral VTi
  7. 7. Aortic valve outflow Fibrous Annulus Rigid  Little systolic change Constant size in adulthood Linear relationship with height
  8. 8. Outflow Tract Diameter: Linearly related to height in adults Linearly related to height in children Neonates <50cm weight is used

  18. 18. Bedside Inotropy Acknowledgement Prof. B.Smith and Veronica Madigan, Bathurst Base Hospital and Charles Sturt University. USCOM allows for Inotropy assessment
  19. 19. Inotropy – heart power External cardiac work Kinetic energy – flow of the blood Potential energy – generation of BP Power is work per unit time
  20. 20. Kinetic energy ½.mass.velocity2 Mass = SV x Density Density is dependant on Hb Mean velocity Velocity sampled every 10 milliseconds If flow time 360ms – 36 readings to average
  21. 21. Potential Energy Δ Pressure x Δ Volume Δ Pressure Pressure leaving the heart (MAP) minus pressure of blood entering heart (CVP) Δ Volume Stroke Volume
  22. 22. Work = KE + PE Power is work per unit time Time for heart to work is the flow time Measured in Watts Power = Kinetic energy + Potential energy Flow time Flow time Indexed by dividing by BSA Smith-Madigan Inotropy Index (SMII) W.m-2
  23. 23. Application of Inotropy Index Normal heart SMII 1.6 – 2.2 W.m-2 LVF patients SMII 0.4 – 1.0 W.m-2 Failing heart 33% normal inotropy
  24. 24. Ratio of Potential to Kinetic energy PKR Normally 30:1 Sepsis much lower – possibly only 3:1 Flow but little Pressure Arterial hypertension - vasoconstriction May be over 150:1 Very little flow Very high SVR
  25. 25. Comparison with CPET data USCOM measurements pre and immediately post CPET 23 patients so far Preliminary data shows good correlation between SMII and Anaerobic Threshold Both pre and post CPET
  26. 26. SMII Pre CPET vs AT
  27. 27. SMII Post CPET vs AT Correlation Coefficient 0.56
  28. 28. SMII vs AT In addition 3 patients with low SMII failed to reach AT! So preliminary data suggests SMII may be useful as correlates well with AT Important - independent of exercise
