In order to provide quality and precise care to children with thyroid dysfunction, clinicians cant just treat children as small adults. Children have different normal ranges and organ development than adults therefor their treatment must accommodate those differences. Despite these difference however, there is limited research and information documented about these ranges, leaving hospitals and clinics to average their own range references. This in itself is a challenge due to the lack of sufficient blood samples and volume restraints. To help alleviate these challenges however, a study was performed to help establish ranges in children and adolescents by collecting samples from 8 different collection sites and analyzing the data that was gathered. This research helps establish testing ranges which aids in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders such as Hashimotos thyroiditis and Graves disease (Rogers 2017). Sources Rogers, L. C. (2017).

There are two ways to perform an echocardiogram, transthoracic or transesophageal. Transthoracic is less invasive but transesophageal can give a clearer image of the smaller structures of the heart. The echocardiogram can measure continuous wave, pulse wave, color mapping, and tissue to get a better picture of the heart function. A patient could expect to see a summary, report, and numbers portion of their echocardiogram results. Echocardiogram is indicated in multiple heart abnormalities such a heart murmur, suspected cardia masses, and prosthetic valve assessment to name a few. Echocardiogram is a versatile and widely used imaging technique for the heart.
