Table 2 Effects of sedation on echocardiographic parameters.

From: Assessment of left ventricular regional function in affected and carrier dogs with duchenne muscular dystrophy using speckle tracking echocardiography

Index Unit Awake Sedated Pvalue
Conventional echocardiography HR bpm 89.10 ± 27.29 69.61 ± 7.01 < 0.05
  ESVI mL/m2 27.37 ± 3.64 21.43 ± 3.61 0.0042
Transmitral flow A wave cm/sec 46.33 ± 12.41 34.22 ± 8.28 0.015
  1. (results with P value < 0.05)
  2. ESVI = Left ventricular end-systolic index; A = Peak velocity of late diastolic flow in transmitral flow.
