Daubeney et al., Cardiol Young 1999
Z scores of cardiac structures including the mitral valve, aortic valve, pulmonary arteries, etc. Regression equations were derived relating cardiac dimensions to the size of the body using a population of 125 normal infants and children. From the Wessex Cardiothoracic Unit, Southampton General Hospital, UK.
Note: the study population had the following characteristics:
- age range: (0 - 17.25)
- bsa range: (0.1 - 1.9)
Data entered for patients outside of these limits should be used with caution.
