ScvO2 As a Marker to Define Fluid Responsiveness.
Summary of "ScvO2 As a Marker to Define Fluid Responsiveness."
: 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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
Nipple Aspirate Fluid
Fluid collected from nipple by gentle aspiration. The fluid contains cells and extracellular fluid from the breast ductal epithelium.
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.
Cerebrospinal Fluid Shunts
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.
The fluid surrounding the OVUM and GRANULOSA CELLS in the Graafian follicle (OVARIAN FOLLICLE). The follicular fluid contains sex steroids, glycoprotein hormones, plasma proteins, mucopolysaccharides, and enzymes.
OBJECTIVE: This monocentric prospective study was conducted to determine if tissue oxygen saturation measured non invasively over masseter muscle site (Masseter-StO2) can predict the central venous ox...
BACKGROUND: The Nexfin device uses non-invasive photoplethysmography to monitor cardiac output and respiratory variations in pulse pressure and stroke volume. The aim of this study was to compare rapi...
Assessment of the hemodynamics and volume status is an important daily task for physicians caring for critically ill patients. There is growing consensus in the critical care community that the "tradi...
PURPOSE: In stable ventilatory and metabolic conditions, changes in end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO(2)) might reflect changes in cardiac index (CI). We tested whether EtCO(2) detects changes in CI indu...
To assess if combining central venous pressure (CVP) and/or pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) information with arterial pulse pressure variation can increase the ability to predict fluid respo...
The purpose of this study is to verify the accuracy and applicability of predictors of fluid administration efficacy in hypotensive critically ill patients.
Fluid therapy is an important part of the management of patients with hemodynamic instability in the intensive care unit. By increasing cardiac preload, it aims at elevating cardiac output...
Pulse pressure variation (PPV) known as a dynamic preload index is increasingly being used for guide of fluid management under various clinical situations. We hypothesized that PPV could p...
Background: Increased serum high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) has been associated with airway inflammation in asthma and may serve as a surrogate marker for the presence of airw...
Children (ages 0-12) that have heart surgery are often at a high risk of developing complications and have to be continuously monitored. Part of the routine care at UCLA includes using a m...
