: 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.

Central venous blood oxygen saturation (ScvO2) is an important monitoring index of fluid resuscitation. However, monitoring of ScvO2 is not continuous and invasive. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) i...
Pulse pressure variation (PPV) has been shown to predict fluid responsiveness in ventilated intensive care unit (ICU) patients. The present study was aimed at assessing the diagnostic accuracy of PPV ...
Recent emphasis has been placed on methods to predict fluid-responsiveness (FR), but the utility of using fluid boluses to increase cardiac index (CI) in critically-ill patients with ineffective circu...
During surgery, proper fluid resuscitation and hemostatic control is critical. Pleth variability index (PVI) is advocated as a reliable way of optimizing intraoperative fluid resuscitation. PVI is a m...
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...
Oxygen concentration for patients undergoing cardiac catheterization and during admission to an intensive care unit is important outcome measure for clinical care. Currently, the tool used...
Our goal was to study the feasibility of predicting fluid responsiveness by transcutaneous partial pressure of oxygen (PtcO2) in the critically ill patients.
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...
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.
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.
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.
