UNLABELLED Patients undergoing major vascular surgery frequently require a substantial intraoperative fluid replacement to assure hemodynamic stability, which is in excess of the expected fluid requirements due to starving, blood and insensible losses. This leads to a positive fluid balance which can not be readily explained. METHOD We have used venous congestion plethysmography (VCP) a non-invasive method for measurement of microvascular parameters in limbs to investigate the changes in… CONTINUE READING
