Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Electrocardiographic (ECG) abnormalities were found in 15 of 20 consecutive children (75%) admitted to the Pediatric ICU (PICU) with central nervous system injury produced by trauma or neurosurgical procedures. The ECG abnormalities included prolonged qTc, U waves, and notched T waves as well as ventricular arrhythmias. The high frequency and potential seriousness of this problem in infants and children suggests that neurogenic ECG changes should be looked for in all infants and children with neurological insults.
