Clinical Trial Summary

Children with Down syndrome (DS) often experience dangerously low heart rates on induction of anesthesia for routine procedures and this occurs at 10 times the rate of non-DS patients. Given that the cardiac output of children is heart rate dependent, bradycardia is especially perilous in this population. Historically, individuals with DS were not expected to survive beyond childhood; consequently, correction of congenital anomalies, e.g. cardiac defects, was not frequently offered. Fortunately, today individuals with DS live into adulthood and surgical correction of anomalies is universally offered. Thus, increasing numbers of children with DS are exposed to anesthesia and at risk for this hemodynamic catastrophe. It is medically unacceptable and an autonomic nervous system mechanism will be sought.
