Evaluating a patient’s intravascular volume status is an essential component of the overall assessment of a patient and is critical to establishing a treatment plan. This is especially true for critically ill patients, septic patients, postoperative patients, and patients with heart failure or kidney disease, to name a few. This webinar will review the methods available for assessing plasma volume status (PVS) and the evidence for their clinical utility.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the importance of establishing the volume status of patients.
  • Review the clinical decision making affected by a patient’s volume status
  • Review the concept of “Goal Directed Therapy” in resuscitation and its benefits and pitfalls
  • Discuss the implications and adverse outcomes of incorrect assessment of volume status, including acute kidney injury, hypo- and hyper-tension, congestion, etc.
  • Evaluate the current methods at our disposal for determining volume status and plasma volume including invasive and non-invasive methods, and the pros and cons of each
