Introduction Assessment of the size of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and its change in diameter in response to respiration have been investigated as a tool to screen for severe hypovolaemia [1], predict fluid responsiveness (FR) [2, 3] and assess potential intolerance to fluid loading. IVC size, collapsibility (IVCc) [2] and distensibility (IVCd) [3] have gained acceptance by emergency and intensive care unit (ICU) clinicians as FR predictors in patients with shock [4]. The ease of acquisition… CONTINUE READING
