OBJECTIVE:: Measurement of extravascular lung water (EVLW) may be useful in the treatment of critically ill children and can be performed at the bedside using the transpulmonary thermodilution technique (TPTD). There are currently no data to verify the accuracy of these measurements in (small) children.

DESIGN:: Prospective clinical study in children. SETTING:: Catheterization laboratory of a university hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS:: Twelve children (
