A modified impedence cardiographic technique was developed using a tetrapolar apnea monitor and minicomputer system. Evaluation of this technique in premature infants with and without symptomatic patent ductus arteriosus indicates that the magnitude of the cardiac-related deflection in the impedance signal is useful in the assessment of ductus shunting. Since the infant under study is involved only by the attachment of two double electrodes to the thorax, continuous assessment of ductur shunting is possible without disturbing routine care.
