Do not abandon monitoring the central venous pressure during fluid resuscitation of septic shock patients
Initial correspondence from Dr. Mallat
With great interest, we read the article by Reddi et al. , but are uncomfortable with their conclusions. In a post hoc analysis of the Australasian Resuscitation In Sepsis Evaluation (ARISE) trial , they found no meaningful relationships between the changes in central venous pressure (delta-CVP) and intravenous fluid administration (FA) and the changes in mean arterial pressure (delta-MAP) and delta-CVP during the first 6 h of resuscitation in septic shock patients .
