BACKGROUND Prediction of the response of the left ventricular stroke volume to fluid administration remains an unsolved clinical problem. We compared the predictive performance of various haemodynamic parameters in the perioperative period in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. These parameters included static indicators of cardiac preload and functional parameters, derived from the arterial pressure waveform analysis. These included the systolic pressure variation (SPV) and its… CONTINUE READING
