To study the feasibility of predicting fluid responsiveness (FR) by passive leg raising (PLR) using a Bioreactance-based noninvasive cardiac output monitoring device (NICOM). This prospective, two-center study included 75 consecutive intensive care unit (ICU) adult patients immediately after cardiac surgery. NICOM was used to continuously record cardiac output (CO) at baseline, during a PLR, and then during a 500 ml i.v. rapid colloid infusion. We estimated the precision of NICOM at baseline to… CONTINUE READING
