"fluid challenge"

Anton Krige, Martin Bland, Thomas Fanshawe
BACKGROUND: Passive leg raising (PLR) is a so called self-volume challenge used to test for fluid responsiveness. Changes in cardiac output (CO) or stroke volume (SV) measured during PLR are used to predict the need for subsequent fluid loading. This requires a device that can measure CO changes rapidly. The Vigileo™ monitor, using third-generation software, allows continuous CO monitoring. The aim of this study was to compare changes in CO (measured with the Vigileo device) during a PLR manoeuvre to calculate the accuracy for predicting fluid responsiveness...

BACKGROUND: The utilization of bolus-dose phenylephrine (PHE) has transitioned to the emergency department (ED) for the treatment of acutely hypotensive patients, despite a paucity of literature in this setting. METHODS: This was a single center retrospective chart review of the utilization of bolus-dosed PHE for acute hypotension in the ED at an academic non-forprofit hospital. The primary objective of this study is to report the frequency of patients that were initiated on a continuous vasopressor infusion (CVI) within 30 minutes after the first administration of bolus-dose PHE...

Although commonly encountered, patients with combined postcapillary and precapillary pulmonary hypertension (Cpc-PH) have poorly understood pulmonary vascular properties. The product of pulmonary vascular resistance and compliance, resistance-compliance (RC) time, is a measure of pulmonary vascular physiology. While RC time is lower in postcapillary PH than in precapillary PH, the RC time in Cpc-PH and the effect of pulmonary wedge pressure (PWP) on RC time are unknown. We tested the hypothesis that Cpc-PH has an RC time that resembles that in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) more than that in isolated postcapillary PH (Ipc-PH)...

BACKGROUND: Currently, physicians employ pulse pressure variation (PPV) as a gold standard for predicting fluid responsiveness. However, employing ultrasonography in intensive care units is increasing, including using the ultrasonography for assessment of fluid responsiveness. Data comparing the performance of both methods are still lacking. This is the reason for the present study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational study in patients with sepsis requiring fluid challenge...

BACKGROUND: A fluid challenge may help to the differential diagnosis between pre- and post-capillary pulmonary hypertension (PH). However the test is still in need of standardization and better defined clinical relevance. METHODS AND RESULTS: Two-hundred-twelve patients referred for PH underwent a right heart catheterization with measurements before and after rapid infusion of 7 ml/kg of saline. PH was defined by a mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) ≥ 25 mmHg and post-capillary PH by a wedged PAP (PAWP) > 15 mmHg...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous fluids (IVF) are frequently utilized to restore intravascular volume in patients with distributive and hypovolemic shock. Although the benefits of the appropriate use of fluids in intensive care units (ICUs) and hospitals are well described, there is growing knowledge regarding the potential risks of volume overload and its impact on organ failure and mortality. To avoid volume overload and its associated complications, strategies to identify fluid responsiveness are developed and utilized more often among ICU patients...

After recognition of the diagnosis sepsis early resuscitation of the patient is mandatory. Patients should have a mean arterial pressure (MAP) ≥65 mmHg. Patients with hypotension should receive initial fluid challenge with approximately 30 mL/kg of balanced electrolyte solutions. However, iatrogenic volume overload should be avoided. If MAP remains < 65mmHg despite adequate volume norepinephrine is the first choice catecholamine. Oxygen should be delivered when oxygen saturation is below 90% to avoid hypoxemia...

Fluid resuscitation plays a fundamental role in the treatment of septic shock. Administration of inappropriately large quantities of fluid may lead to volume overload, which is increasingly recognized as an independent risk factor for morbidity and mortality in critical illness. In the early treatment of sepsis, timely fluid challenges should be given to optimize organ perfusion, but continuous positive fluid balance is discouraged. In fact, achievement of a negative fluid balance during treatment of sepsis is associated with better outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Both hypovolemia and hypervolemia are connected with increased morbidity and mortality in the treatment and prognosis of patients. An accurate assessment of volume state allows the optimization of organ perfusion and oxygen supply. Recently, ultrasonography has been used to detect hypovolemia in critically ill patients and perioperative patients. The objective of our study was to assess the correlation between inferior vena cava (IVC) variation obtained with ultrasound and stroke volume variation (SVV) measured by the Vigileo/FloTrac monitor, as fluid responsiveness indicators, in patients undergoing anesthesia for surgery...

OBJECTIVES: Evidence to guide fluid resuscitation evidence in sepsis continues to evolve. We conducted a multicountry survey of emergency and critical care physicians to describe current stated practice and practice variation related to the quantity, rapidity and type of resuscitation fluid administered in early septic shock to inform the design of future septic shock fluid resuscitation trials. METHODS: Using a web-based survey tool, we invited critical care and emergency physicians in Canada, the UK, Scandinavia and Saudi Arabia to complete a self-administered electronic survey...

With the development of microfluidics, electro-osmotic (EO) driven flow has gained intense research interest as a result of its unique flow profile and the corresponding benefits in its application in the transportation of sensitive samples. Sensitive samples, such as DNA, are incapable of enduring strong flow shear induced by conventional hydrodynamic driven methods. EO driven flow is thus a niche area. However, even though there are a few research studies focusing on bio-fluidic samples related to EO driven flow, the majority of them are merely theoretical modeling without solid evidence from experiments due to the inherent complex rheological behavior of the bio-fluids...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is common in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). While PH-HFpEF may affect more than a million patients in the United States alone, it has been difficult to study its epidemiology and response to treatment due to difficulty in properly defining the illness. While chronic remodeling of the pulmonary vasculature is related to chronic passive congestion of the pulmonary circulation from the pulmonary veins, there are likely other contributors to the development of PH-HFpEF...

This systematic review aims to summarize the published data on the reliability of pulse pressure variation (PPV) and stroke volume variation (SVV) to predict fluid responsiveness in an open-chest setting during cardio-thoracic surgery. The analysis included studies reporting receiver operating characteristics or correlation coefficients between PPV/SVV and change in any hemodynamic variables after a fluid challenge test in open-chest conditions. The literature search included seven studies. Increase in cardiac index and stroke volume index after a fluid challenge were the most adopted end-point variables...

BACKGROUND: Appropriate fluid management is one of the most important elements of early goal-directed therapy after cardiothoracic surgery. Reliable determination of fluid responsivenss remains the fundamental issue in volume therapy. The purpose of the study was to assess the usefulness of dynamic IVC-derived parameters (collapsibility index, distensibility index) in comparison to passive leg raising, in postoperative fluid management in mechanically ventilated patients with left ventricular ejection fraction ≥ 30 %, immediately after elective coronary artery bypass grafting...

BACKGROUND: Predicting whether a fluid challenge will elicit 'fluid responsiveness' in stroke volume (SV) and arterial pressure is crucial for managing hypovolaemia and hypotension. Pulse pressure variation (PPV), SV variation (SVV) and the plethysmographic variability index (PVI) have been shown to predict SV fluid responsiveness, and the PPV/SVV ratio has been shown to predict arterial pressure fluid responsiveness under various conditions. However, these variables have not been investigated in liver cirrhosis patients...
