An adequate assessment of volume status is essential in patients undergoing (major) surgery. Dynamic preload variables have been shown to be able to predict fluid responsiveness.
All the investigated dynamic preload variables are able to predict fluid responsiveness with similar sensitivity and specificity in patients undergoing major hepatic resection. The ability to predict fluid responsiveness seems comparable between variables derived from the semi-invasive arterial pressure waveform and from the non-invasive plethysmographic waveform, suggesting that non-invasive variables might replace semi-invasive variables.
