: Definition of the hemodynamic response to volume expansion (VE) could be useful in shocked critically ill patients in absence of cardiac index (CI) measurements. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether central venous oxygen saturation variations (DeltaScvO2 after VE could be an alternative to classify responders (R) and nonresponders (NR) to volume therapy.
: A total of 30 patients requiring VE were included in this prospective cohort study, all equipped with radial arterial line and pulmonary artery catheters. CI, mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) and ScvO2 were measured before and after VE. CI, SvO2, and ScvO2 changes after volume were analyzed using linear regression. Receiver operating characteristics curve analysis was used to test their ability to distinguish R and NR.
: DeltaScvO2 and SvO2 variations after VE (DeltaSvO2) were significantly correlated with CI changes (DeltaCI) after VE (r = 0.67 and r = 0.49, p < 0.001, respectively). A DeltaScvO2 threshold value of 4% allowed the definition of R and NR patients with 86% sensitivity (95%CI; 57-98%) and 81% specificity (95%CI; 54-96%).
: ScvO2 variations after VE was able to categorize VE efficiently and could be suggested as an alternative marker to define fluid responsiveness in absence of invasive CI measurement.

The aim of fluid resuscitation is to increase stroke volume, yet this effect is observed in only 50% of patients. Prediction of fluid responsiveness may allow fluid resuscitation to be administered to...
Stroke volume variation (SVV) is a reliable predictor of fluid responsiveness in adult patients. However, the predictive value of SVV is uncertain in pediatric patients. We performed the first systema...
Stroke volume variation (SVV) and pulse pressure variation (PPV) are used as indicators of fluid responsiveness, but little is known about the usefulness of these dynamic preload indicators in thoraci...
Dynamic tests of fluid responsiveness have been developed and investigated in clinical trials of goal-directed therapy. The impact of this approach on clinically relevant outcomes is unknown. We perfo...
Pulse pressure variation (PPV) is a well known dynamic preload indicator of fluid responsiveness. However, its usefulness in open-chest conditions remains controversial.
The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of Fluid Responsiveness (FR) (SV increases by at least 15% after Volume Expansion, VE) in postoperative patients admitted on a surgical...
To overcome the limited accuracy of functional hemodynamic parameters such as stroke volume and pulse pressure variation (SVV and PPV) during spontaneous breathing, a Passive Leg Raising (...
Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been found to be useful for aiding in the prediction of fluid responsiveness. It is unknown if trainees can effectively utilize this tool to improve th...
Perioperative fluid management is crucial for patients' outcome. Muller et al developed a "Mini-fluid challenge method " to predict fluid responsiveness and the efficacy. The investigators...
To predict fluid responsiveness in anesthetized pediatric patient is not an easy task although anesthesia provider has to deal with this question on their daily practices. Today, very few ...
The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.
Fluid collected from nipple by gentle aspiration. The fluid contains cells and extracellular fluid from the breast ductal epithelium.
Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through a hole through the skull bone most commonly draining from the nose (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID RHINORRHEA) or the ear (CEREBROSPINAL FLUID OTORRHEA).
Vaccines used in conjunction with diagnostic tests to differentiate vaccinated animals from carrier animals. Marker vaccines can be either a subunit or a gene-deleted vaccine.
Tubes inserted to create communication between a cerebral ventricle and the internal jugular vein. Their emplacement permits draining of cerebrospinal fluid for relief of hydrocephalus or other condition leading to fluid accumulation in the ventricles.
