    Background: Echocardiography plays an increasing role in NICU’s, and neonatologists increasingly use it to make clinical decisions. It is the utilization of cardiac ultrasound at the bedside to assess longitudinal changes in both functional and hemodynamic parameters. Information that reflects cardiac capacity and systemic and pulmonary blood flow in preterm and term neonates can be observed. Analyzing hemodynamics via echocardiography at the bedside can be considered an addition to the clinical examination to assess cardiac function in sick neonates. Our primary goal in this study is to determine whether sick neonates have heart structural or functional abnormalities via echocardiography. Objectives: To determine the correlation between echocardiographic indications and intervention in sick newborns. Material & Methods: This prospective cross-sectional study will be conduct..
