OBJECTIVE To assess the ability of pulse pressure variation to predict fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated elderly patients after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. DESIGN A prospective, interventional study. SETTING An academic, tertiary referral hospital. PARTICIPANTS Sixty patients >70 years old and mechanically ventilated after coronary artery bypass graft surgery. INTERVENTIONS Intravascular volume expansion using 6% hydroxyethyl starch solution, 7 mL/kg over 20… CONTINUE READING
