OBJECTIVES We sought to validate a new noninvasive technique to determine central venous pressure (CVP) using high-resolution compression sonography. BACKGROUND Information concerning CVP is crucial in clinical situations, including cardiac failure, volume overload, and sepsis. The measurement of CVP, however, requires puncture of a vein with attendant risk of complication. METHODS After a proof-of-concept study in healthy subjects, a prospective blinded evaluation was performed comparing… CONTINUE READING
