The respiratory change in preejection period: a new method to predict fluid responsiveness.
The accuracy and clinical utility of preload indexes as bedside indicators of fluid responsiveness in patients after cardiac surgery is controversial. This study evaluates whether respiratory changesExpand

Clinical validation of a new thermodilution system for the assessment of cardiac output and volumetric parameters
IntroductionTranspulmonary thermodilution is used to measure cardiac output (CO), global end-diastolic volume (GEDV) and extravascular lung water (EVLW). A system has been introducedExpand

Plethysmographic dynamic indices predict fluid responsiveness in septic ventilated patients
ObjectivesIn septic patients, reliable non-invasive predictors of fluid responsiveness are needed. We hypothesised that the respiratory changes in the amplitude of the plethysmographic pulse waveExpand

Pre-ejection period variations predict the fluid responsiveness of septic ventilated patients
Objectives:In septic patients with acute circulatory failure, reliable predictors of fluid responsiveness are needed at the bedside. We hypothesized that the respiratory change in pre-ejection periodExpand
