Variation in Blood Pressure as a Guide to Volume Loading in Children Following Cardiopulmonary Bypass


Intravascular volume loading is used to optimize cardiac output in children following weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass. Central venous pressure (CVP) is frequently used to titrate fluid administration but it is often misleading in predicting fluid responsiveness. Variation in the arterial pressure waveform is exaggerated in patients with deficient… (More)
