Abstract

To correlate collapsibility of the inferior vena cava (IVC) with packed cell volume (PCV) and clinical condition and to ascertain IVC collapsibility as a guide to estimate intravascular volume using bedside ultrasonography (USG) in children with dengue fever. A prospective observational study was conducted in the Pediatric Emergency Department of an academic hospital in India. Clinical data and PCV of children with dengue fever aged between 1 month to 18 years were documented. The collapsibility of IVC was determined using bedside ultrasonogram. IVC collapsibility correlates with high PCV and dengue shock in children ( = 0.000). IVC was not collapsible in children with normal PCV ( = 0.000). The collapsibility of IVC correlated with the need for normal saline bolus ( = 0.000), colloids ( = 0.002), PICU admission ( = 0.015) and mortality ( = < 0.05). The assessment of intravascular volume status by determining IVC collapsibility using bedside USG is a helpful non-invasive tool in children with dengue fever.
