You should also tell your child they will need an IV. </li> </ul><h2>What will happen during the bubble study</h2> <p>Before the test, the nurse will ask your child to change into a hospital gown.</p> <p>Three people will be in the room to do the test:</p> <ul> <li>a doctor </li> <li>a nurse </li> <li>a sonographer, who operates the echocardiogram machine </li> </ul> <p>The doctor will mix the bubble solution in a sterile syringe and inject it into your child's IV. The sonographer will take the pictures with the echocardiogram probe. </p><h2>Going home after the test</h2> <p>If your child was not given a sedative, they can drink as usual. The nurse or doctor will remove the IV and put a bandage on before you and your child go home. </p> <p>If your child was given a sedative for the test, your child's nurse will tell you what you need to do.</p> <p>For more information on caring for your child after sedation, please read the Sedation pamphlet. </p><h2>Preparing for a bubble study</h2> <p>To get your child ready for a bubble study, follow the same instructions you follow for a regular echocardiogram.</p> <p>You should also tell your child that they will need an intravenous line (IV) on the day of the test. An IV is a needle in your child's arm, attached to a tube. This lets us put fluids directly into your child's bloodstream. </p> <h3>Eating and drinking before a bubble study</h3> <p>Most children do not need to do anything special to get ready for an echocardiogram. However, if your child is under three years old, they may need a sedative. A sedative is a kind of medicine that will help your child sleep for the test. An echocardiogram works best when the child does not move. </p> <p>If your child is having a sedative for the test, they must stop eating and drinking several hours before the test. A nurse will call you in the week before the test to make sure you understand what and when your child can eat and drink. The table below also tells you when your child must stop eating and drinking. </p> <h3>What your child can eat and drink before the sleep medicine</h3> <table class="akh-table"> <thead> <tr><th>Time before test</th><th>What you need to know</th></tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>8 hours</td> <td><p>No more solid food, milk or orange juice.

Apprenez-en davantage sur les examens gazeux.</p><h2>Qu’est-ce qu’un échocardiogramme?</h2> <p>Un échocardiogramme est un examen qui utilise des ultrasons pour prendre des images du cœur. Un échocardiogramme s’appelle aussi parfois une échocardiographie. Il permet d’obtenir des images du cœur et de ses alentours. Ces renseignements aideront les médecins à comprendre le comportement du cœur de votre enfant.</p> <p>Pour plus de renseignements sur les échocardiogrammes, y compris les raisons pour lesquelles ils sont faits, comment s’y préparer, et à quoi s’attendre pendant un échocardiogramme, consultez la rubrique « <a href="/Article?contentid=1274&language=French"> Échocardiogramme </a>».<br></p> <h2>Qu’est-ce qu’un examen gazeux?</h2> <p>Parfois, on injecte un fluide appelé un agent de contraste dans le sang de votre enfant afin d’obtenir une image plus claire de son cœur sur l’échocardiogramme.</p> <p>Un type d’agent de contraste est une solution saline (eau stérile et sel) mélangée à un gaz. Habituellement, ce gaz est du dioxyde de carbone, le même qui produit les bulles dans les boissons gazeuses. Lorsqu’on utilise ce type de solution, on appelle cela un examen gazeux (ou à bulles).</p> <p>Un examen gazeux permet de suivre le chemin que prennent les bulles dans la circulation sanguine et peut permettre de déceler des problèmes cardiaques ou pulmonaires.</p> <p>Un examen à bulles est sécuritaire. La solution gazeuse est facilement absorbée par le sang de votre enfant.<br></p><h2>Principaux points à retenir</h2> <ul> <li>Un examen gazeux désigne un ultrason du cœur qui utilise un liquide avec des bulles pour aider les médecins à mieux voir le cheminement du sang dans le cœur.</li> <li>L’agent de contraste est habituellement une solution saline (eau et sel) stérile avec du dioxyde de carbone. Il est injecté dans le corps à l’aide d’une perfusion intraveineuse. Il est sécuritaire.</li> <li>Votre enfant devrait se préparer pour un examen gazeux de la même manière que pour un échocardiogramme. Dites à votre enfant qu’on devra lui installer une perfusion intraveineuse.</li> </ul><h2>Que se passe-t-il pendant un examen à bulles?</h2> <p>Avant l’examen, l’infirmière demandera à votre enfant de se changer et d’enfiler une chemise d’hôpital.</p> <p>Trois personnes seront présentes dans la salle pour effectuer l’examen :</p> <ul> <li>un médecin,</li> <li>une infirmière,</li> <li>un échographiste, c’est-à-dire la personne qui fait fonctionner l’appareil pour échocardiogrammes.</li> </ul> <p>Le médecin mélangera la solution gazeuse dans une seringue stérile et l’injectera dans l’intraveineuse de votre enfant. L’échographiste prendra des images à l’aide de la sonde pour échocardiogramme.</p><h2>Retour à la maison après l’examen</h2> <p>Si votre enfant n’a pas reçu de sédatif, il peut boire comme d’habitude. L’infirmière ou le médecin retirera l’intraveineuse et appliquera un pansement avant que vous et votre enfant retourniez à la maison.</p> <p>Si votre enfant a reçu un sédatif pour l’examen, l’infirmière de votre enfant vous indiquera ce que vous devrez faire.</p> <p>Pour plus de renseignements sur les soins à donner à votre enfant après la sédation, consultez le dépliant intitulé « Sédation ». </p><h2>Se préparer à un examen gazeux</h2> <p>Pour préparer votre enfant à un examen gazeux, suivez les mêmes instructions que pour un échocardiogramme normal.</p> <p>Vous devriez également dire à votre enfant qu’il aura une perfusion intraveineuse le jour de l’examen, c'est-à-dire qu’on insérera dans son bras une aiguille reliée à un tube. Le liquide peut alors être injecté directement dans le sang de votre enfant par la perfusion intraveineuse.</p> <h3>Manger ou boire avant un examen à bulles</h3> <p>La plupart des enfants n’ont rien à faire de particulier pour se préparer à un échocardiogramme. Cependant, si votre enfant a moins de trois ans, il devra peut-être pendre un sédatif. Un sédatif est un médicament qui le fera dormir pendant l’examen. Un échocardiogramme donne de meilleurs résultats lorsque l’enfant ne bouge pas.</p> <p>Si votre enfant doit prendre un sédatif pour l’examen, il doit cesser de manger et de boire plusieurs heures avant l’examen. Une infirmière vous appellera au cours de la semaine qui précède l’examen pour s’assurer que vous comprenez bien ce que votre enfant peut, et ne peut pas, manger et boire. Le tableau ci-dessous indique le moment où votre enfant doit cesser de manger et de boire. </p> <h3>Ce que votre enfant peut manger ou boire avant le sédatif</h3> <table class="akh-table"> <thead> <tr><th>Temps avant l’examen</th><th>Ce qu’il faut savoir</th></tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>8 heures</td> <td><p>Plus aucune nourriture solide, lait ou jus d’orange.
