OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the pleth variability index (PVI), derived noninvasively from a pulse oximeter probe, would predict fluid responsiveness in patients undergoing noncardiac surgeries. DESIGN A clinical, prospective, observational study. SETTING Operating room of a tertiary care hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-nine adult patients undergoing a range of noncardiac surgeries, requiring general anesthesia, tracheal intubation, and mechanical ventilation. INTERVENTIONS… CONTINUE READING
