This is a pilot study to investigate whether patients at advanced age are fluid responders via a reversible fluid challenge, the passive leg raise test. This will be measured with a non-invasive cardiac output monitor, the LiDCO (LiDCO Hemodynamic monitoring) .
The intervention is as simple as a passive leg raise with measurement of effect on Stroke volume.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

The investigators wish to determine whether passive leg raise allows for easier peripheral vascular access in the pediatric population. The investigators hypothesize that pediatric anesthe...
Difficulties in the accurate assessment of intravascular volume in critically ill patients are frequently encountered. In addition to clinical evaluation, bedside echocardiographic measure...
Purpose: Fluid responsiveness in a context of circulatory failure can be predicted by different way. Dynamic criteria such as pulse pressure variation, stroke volume variation during an ...
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 (...
Evaluation of electrical impedance tomography to non-invasively monitor stroke volume when compared to reference measurements performed via right heart thermodilution
Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a noninvasive imaging method that identifies changes in air and blood volume based on thoracic impedance changes. Recently, there has been growing interest in ...
Determination of cardiac output requires measurement of both heart rate and stroke volume. Techniques for measuring heart rate are widespread, and 1 technique for bedside monitoring of stroke volume i...
Reliable imaging biomarkers of response to therapy in acute stroke are needed. The final infarct volume and percent of early reperfusion have been used for this purpose. Early fluctuation in stroke si...
Recently, passive musculotendinous stiffness (MTS) has been assessed manually in the field; however, when conducting these types of assessments, the stretching velocity must be controlled to avoid eli...
The purpose of this study was to examine the acute effects of constant-angle (CA) and constant-torque (CT) static stretching on passive stiffness of the posterior hip and thigh muscles in healthy, you...
The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
The volume of the HEART, usually relating to the volume of BLOOD contained within it at various periods of the cardiac cycle. The amount of blood ejected from a ventricle at each beat is STROKE VOLUME.
The amount of BLOOD pumped out of the HEART per beat not to be confused with cardiac output (volume/time).
A type of impedance plethysmography in which bioelectrical impedance is measured between electrodes positioned around the neck and around the lower thorax. It is used principally to calculate stroke volume and cardiac volume, but it is also related to myocardial contractility, thoracic fluid content, and circulation to the extremities.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
