BACKGROUND Several authors have suggested that right ventricular dysfunction (RVd) may contribute to renal dysfunction in nonsurgical patients. OBJECTIVES We tested the hypothesis that RVd diagnosed immediately after cardiac surgery may be associated with subsequent development of renal dysfunction and tried to identify the possible mechanisms. DESIGN A(More)
INTRODUCTION Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a useful tool for minimally invasive hemodynamic monitoring in the ICU. Dynamic indices (such as the inferior vena cava distensibility index (dIVC)) can be used to predict fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients. Although quantitative use of the dIVC has been validated, the routinely used(More)
Dynamic indices (based on cardiopulmonary interactions in mechanically ventilated patients in sinus rhythm) have been developed as simple tools for predicting fluid responsiveness in the absence of cardiac output monitoring. Although the earliest dynamic indices relied on the invasive measurement of pulse pressure variations or stroke volume variations, the(More)
