From: Fluid responsiveness in acute circulatory failure

Parameter Cut-off value (%) Evidence Limitations
SPV [6, 16, 2023] NA Cohort Affected by airway and pleural pressure [17]
PPV [6, 2429] 13 Meta-analysis Needs special monitor; needs arterial line
SVV [6, 30, 3235] 14 Cohort Needs either arterial line (plus special monitor) or esophageal Doppler
SOI [31] 11 Cohort Needs esophageal Doppler
POP [36] 9.5–15 Meta-analysis Needs special pulse oximeter
PVI [36, 37] 9.5–15 Meta-analysis Needs Masimo device
IVC variation [3841] 12–21 Meta-analysis Needs ultrasound; difficult in abdominal surgical cases; cannot be used intraoperatively
SVC variation [4042] 29–36 Cohort Needs trans-esophageal echocardiography
IJV variation [44, 45] 18 Cohort Needs ultrasound
Subaortic VTI [47] NA Animal study Needs echocardiography; needs good operator experience; not tried in humans yet
Aortic velocity variation [48, 49] 12–18 Cohort Needs echocardiography or esophageal Doppler
Carotid velocity variation [50, 51] 11–14 Cohort Needs ultrasound
