Thigh Ultrasound Monitoring Identifies Decreases in Quadriceps Femoris Thickness as a Frequent Observation in Critically Ill Children

Abstract : Significant muscle wasting develops in critically ill adults, with subsequent worse outcomes. In the pediatric setting, occurrence and effects of muscle wasting are undescribed; this is in part due to a lack of validated, objective methods for assessing muscle wasting. A single measurement of quadriceps femoris thickness has failed to show consistent eproducibility.
