We reviewed the comparative trials of the Flotrac/VigileoTM versus the thermodilution method, published in the last five years. The results about the agreement between the two methods measuring cardiac output are contrasting. We also noticed that almost the whole pertinent literature include studies conducted without a correct statistical design,(More)
BACKGROUND Aortic clamping and unclamping abruptly impact hemodynamic assessment. First, vascular resistance and venous blood return increase, causing a cardiac stress; second, when the clamp has been replaced, vascular resistance falls and hypotension with low perfusion pressure risk occurs. We hypothesized that positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)(More)
