Brief Summary:

The aim of the study is to evaluate whether changes in Perfusion Index (PI) and Pleth Variability Index (PVI) during passive leg raising test can predict fluid responsiveness in spontaneously breathing patients.

Fluid responsive patients are defined as showing an increase in cardiac output >10% during a passive leg raising test, measured semi-invaseively with FloTrac® (Edwards LifeSciences. Irvine, United States).

Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Prediction of Fluid Responsiveness From Passive Leg Raising Induced Changes in Perfusion Index and Pleth Variability Index
Actual Study Start Date : April 20, 2018
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 1, 2019
Actual Study Completion Date : April 1, 2019

Intervention Details:
  • Diagnostic Test: Passive Leg Raising Test
    A passive leg raising test is performed in all patients included in the study


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PI difference [ Time Frame: 90 seconds ]
    Difference in the change of perfusion index from baseline during a passive leg raising maneuver in fluid responsive patients compared to fluid non-responders

  2. PVI difference [ Time Frame: 90 seconds ]
    Difference in the change of pleth variability index from baseline during a passive leg raising maneuver in fluid responsive patients compared to fluid non-responders
