Fluid responsiveness in sepsis: the fluid challenge revisiting (FCREV) study

2019 23 May

Fluid challenge is a common practice in the ICU. It is one of the most important resuscitation manoeuvres of acute circulatory failure management in critically ill patients. Adequate fluid resuscitation is very important because both hypovolaemia and fluid overload can result in poor outcomes in the ICU. The criteria for fluid administration... Read more

New Study Evaluates the Performance of Masimo PVi® as a Predictor of Fluid Responsiveness

2018 12 Feb

Masimo announced today the findings of a recently published study in which researchers at Bülent Ecevit University in Zonguldak, Turkey compared two noninvasive methods of predicting fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU): Masimo PVi® (pleth variability index, measured noninvasively and continuously...

Fluid Challenge: Its Impact on Fluid Responsiveness

2017 15 Aug

The fluid challenge is considered the gold standard for diagnosis of fluid responsiveness. A new systematic review finds that the duration of the fluid infusion in a fluid challenge has a significant influence on fluid responsiveness – i.e., a rapid infusion increases the proportion of patients with a positive response. However, the type and volume... Read more

Fluid Responsiveness in Emergency Care

2017 11 Apr

While fluid responsiveness is directly relevant to emergency care, a systematic review has found very little evidence (489 patients in total) on which to base best practice. High quality, adequately powered outcome studies are still lacking, so the place of fluid responsiveness in the emergency department (ED) remains undefined, according to the review... Read more

Echocardiography is Essential Tool for Fluid Responsiveness

2016 27 Sep

Echocardiography is an essential tool to predict and measure fluid responsiveness, according to a recent article, which provides a practical guide. Ashley Miller and Justin Mandeville outline the physiological basis of fluid resuscitation, and describe how fluid responsiveness can be assessed with echocardiography. They also look at the limitations... Read more

New Study Evaluates Masimo PVI® as a Predictor of Fluid Responsiveness

2016 28 Jul

Masimo  has announced that a new study of patients undergoing liver transplantation evaluated the relationship of PVI® to right ventricular end-diastolic volume (RVEDVI) and concluded that PVI provided a “reliable estimate of [cardiac] preload status and may be a useful predictor of fluid responsiveness.” 1  PVI measures the dynamic changes in perfusion...
