A correct estimation of volume status and so-called dry weight in dialysis patients remains a difficult clinical problem. Clinical status and chest X-ray are not sensitive enough, while invasively measured central venous pressures are not routinely available. Recently, the sonographic determination of the diameter and collapse of the inferior vena cava (IVC) has been proposed as a noninvasive method for estimating intravascular volume. We tried to evaluate the clinical relevance of this method… CONTINUE READING
