The evolution and current use of invasive hemodynamic monitoring for predicting volume responsiveness during resuscitation, perioperative, and critical care
Journal of Clinical Anesthesia, 05/14/2012
Manoach S et al. – Intravascular monitors are used to predict fluid responsiveness and need for alternative therapies, such as vasomotor or inotropic support. Recent efficacy data, along with other important clinical findings, are reviewed with regard to invasive monitors. The authors caution against over–generalizing from existing studies, and provide guidance for clinicians wishing to target monitoring techniques for appropriate patients.
