BACKGROUND Stroke volume variation (SVV)--as measured by the pulse contour cardiac output (PiCCO) system--predicts the cardiac output response to a fluid challenge in patients on controlled ventilation. Whether this applies to patients on pressure support ventilation is unknown. METHODS Thirty consecutive patients with septic shock were included. All were… CONTINUE READING
