This conversation reflects a discussion had at the Perioperative Quality Inititative (POQI). It originally ran under the title, “Intervascular volume and fluid responsiveness” but, as this conversation explains, it was renamed “Fluid Responsiveness and venous capacitance”.
With a genuinely multidisciplinary approach on display here this piece gives you a glimpse at the inner workings of the POQI process. How does macro circulation interlock with micro circulation and cellular function? How do people on the ground measure stroke volumes? What do you do when passive leg raising is not appropriate? How do we address hypovolemia? How do you define fluid responsiveness at the bedside?
Presented by Desiree Chappell and Mike Grocott with their guests David Kaufman Associate Professor, Director, Medical Intensive Care Unit at NYU School of Medicine, NYU-Langone Medical Center and Dr Greg Martin Director, Research Network, GaCTSA; Director, Predictive Health Institute; Research Director, Emory Critical Care Center.
