REVIEW
John C Greenwood, Clinton J Orloski
Resuscitation goals for the patient with sepsis and septic shock are to return the patient to a physiologic state that promotes adequate end-organ perfusion along with matching metabolic supply and demand. Ideal resuscitation end points should assess the adequacy of tissue oxygen delivery and oxygen consumption, and be quantifiable and reproducible. Despite years of research, a single resuscitation end point to assess adequacy of resuscitation has yet to be found. Thus, the clinician must rely on multiple end points to assess the patient's overall response to therapy...

Recent literature continues to refine which components of the early goal-directed therapy (EGDT) algorithm are necessary. Given it utilizes central venous pressure, continuous central venous oxygen saturation, routine blood transfusions, and inotropic medications, this algorithm can be timely, invasive, costly, and potentially harmful. New trials highlight early recognition, early fluid resuscitation, appropriate antibiotic treatment, source control, and the application of a multidisciplinary evidence-based approach as essential components of current sepsis management...

Substantial increases in cardiac output (CO), stroke volume (SV) and gastrointestinal blood flow are essential for euryhaline rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss) osmoregulating in seawater. However, the underlying hemodynamic mechanisms responsible for these changes are unknown. By examining a range of circulatory and cardiac morphological variables of seawater- and freshwater-acclimated rainbow trout, the present study revealed a significantly higher central venous pressure (CVP) in seawater-acclimated trout (~0...

Fluid balance management is of great importance in the critically ill cardiac patient. Although intravenous fluids are a cornerstone therapy in the management of unstable patients, excessive administration coupled with cardiac dysfunction leads to elevation in central venous pressure and end-organ venous congestion. Fluid overload is known to have a detrimental effect on organ function and is responsible for significant morbidity in critically ill patients. Multisystem bedside point of care ultrasound imaging can be used to assess signs of fluid overload and venous congestion in critically ill patients...

The protective effects of preprocedural esmolol on myocardial injury and hemodynamics have not, to date, been investigated in patients who were scheduled for cardiac surgeries under a cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). A pilot randomized controlled trial was performed at The First Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University (Dalian, China). Patients scheduled for elective open-heart surgeries under CBP were included, and were randomized to esmolol and control groups. For patients in the esmolol groups, intravenous esmolol (70 µg/kg/min) was administered at the time of incision until CPB was performed...

Central venous pressure (CVP) is primarily measured to assess intravascular volume status and heart preload. In clinical practice, the measuring device most commonly used in emergency departments and intensive care units, is an electronic transducer that interconnects a central venous catheter (CVC) with a monitoring system. Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) consists in a breathing support that supplies a positive pressure in airways through a mask or a cask though not using an endotracheal prosthesis. In emergency settings, non-invasive ultrasonography evaluation of CVP, and hence of intravascular volume status entail the measurement by a subxiphoid approach of inferior vena cava diameter and its variations in relation to respiratory activity...

A 70-year-old man presented with recent onset, predominantly right-sided heart failure. Echocardiogram demonstrated features of hypertensive heart disease and was suggestive of, but non-diagnostic for, constrictive pericarditis (CP). CT demonstrated mild pericardial thickening. Right heart catheterisation showed elevation and equalisation of diastolic pressures in all cardiac chambers with early rapid filling, minimal ventricular interdependence, and no dissociation of intrathoracic and intracardiac pressures...

PURPOSE: To obtain a point prevalence estimate of alterations in central venous pressure (CVP) produced by active expiration in a consecutive series of intensive care patients. METHODS: We evaluated CVP tracings taken by the nurses at their morning shift change in a consecutive series of 60 cardiac surgery and 59 noncardiac surgery patients. We also assessed change in values due to the change in transducer level. Three physicians and a nurse instructor independently reviewed the tracings and determined whether there was evidence of forced expiration and whether it was type A, defined by decreasing CVP during expiration, or type B, defined by increasing CVP during expiration...

BACKGROUND: Right ventricular (RV) mechanical support is well described in cases of sudden increase in RV afterload. In cases of chronic RV pressure overload (e.g., pulmonary arterial hypertension), it has rarely been described. METHODS: The pulmonary artery was banded in 18 sheep. In the acute group (n = 9), we immediately implanted a Synergy Pocket Micro-Pump. Blood was withdrawn from the right atrium to the pulmonary artery. In the chronic group (n = 9), this pump was implanted 8 weeks after banding...

REVIEW
Xavier Monnet, Paul E Marik, Jean-Louis Teboul
In patients with acute circulatory failure, the decision to give fluids or not should not be taken lightly. The risk of overzealous fluid administration has been clearly established. Moreover, volume expansion does not always increase cardiac output as one expects. Thus, after the very initial phase and/or if fluid losses are not obvious, predicting fluid responsiveness should be the first step of fluid strategy. For this purpose, the central venous pressure as well as other "static" markers of preload has been used for decades, but they are not reliable...

BACKGROUND: Hypertension in the postpartum period is a common phenomenon and is often a cause for concern. Following delivery, fluid that has been sequestered in the extravascular space is mobilized, producing a large auto-infusion of fluid from the extravascular to the intravascular compartment. As a result of this fluid mobilization process, there is an increase in central venous pressure and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, which might favor the development of pulmonary edema. Thus, diuretics logically might be a better choice as antihypertensive medication in such a scenario...

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is highly prevalent in critically ill patients admitted to the intensive care unit and is associated with an increased morbidity and mortality. The present study investigated whether femoral venous pressure (FVP) can be used as a surrogate parameter for intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) measured via the bladder in IAH grade II (IAP <20 mmHg) or grade III (IAP ≥20 mmHg). This was a single-centre prospective study carried out in a tertiary adult intensive care unit. IAP was measured via the bladder with a urinary catheter with simultaneous recording of the FVP via a femoral central line...

Different pericardial catheters have been suggested as an effective alternative method for drainage of pericardial effusion. The aim of this study was to determine the performance, pain, and quality of life on use of central venous catheter (CVC) for drainage of pericardial effusion in patients undergoing open heart surgery. Fifty-five patients who had developed pericardial effusion after an open heart surgery (2012-2015) were prospectively assessed. Triple-lumen central catheters were inserted under echocardiographic guidance...
