Levosimendan is a drug used in patients with heart failure and has several advantages over other heart failure drugs. A lot of research has been done with levosimendan in adults, and the way the body handles the drug (pharmacokinetics) and responds to the drug (pharmacodynamics) are well established. But, in children this information is lacking despite the fact that levosimendan is increasingly used in children of all ages. The investigators aim to describe which levosimendan dose leads to which drug levels in children of different ages.
