Comparison of initial distribution volume of glucose and intrathoracic blood volume during hemodynamically unstable States early after esophagectomy.

STUDY OBJECTIVE We have reported that initial distribution volume of glucose (IDVG) measures the central extracellular fluid volume in the presence of fluid gain or loss without apparent modification of glucose metabolism. We hypothesized that IDVG has a close relationship with intrathoracic blood volume (ITBV). We examined whether IDVG can correlate with… (More)
