Saturday with SMACC: The Art and Science of Fluid Responsiveness

Haney Mallemat – The Art and Science of Fluid Responsiveness from Social Media and Critical Care on Vimeo. From SMACC Gold: In a great talk, Haney Mallemat from the University of Maryland discusses the limitations of static indices of fluid responsiveness such as blood pressure and respiratory-induced changes in inferior vena cava diameter. He argues persuasively that dynamic indices — such as change in stroke volume with passive leg raise — are more accurate and precise, although measurement is technically more difficult.
