Table 3 Vasoactive drug infusions

From: Fluid responsiveness prediction using Vigileo FloTrac measured cardiac output changes during passive leg raise test

  All Responders Non-responders p
Norepinephrine (mcg/kg/min) 0.28 (0.20, 0.36) (n = 30) 0.31 (0.16, 0.37) (n = 10) 0.28 (0.21, 0.34) (n = 20) 0.92
Vasopressin (mcg/min) 4.5 (n = 1) 3.0 (n = 1)a
Dobutamine (mcg/kg/min) 4.6 (1.2) (n = 7) 4.4 (1.3) (n = 4) 4.8 (1.2) (n = 3)
  1. Data are shown as mean (standard deviation) or median (inter-quartile range), and number of patients (n) (p value compares dose between responders and non-responders in the case of norepinephrine). In the case of vasopressin, the only dose is given, as there was one patient only in each group
  2. aThe only patient requiring vasopressor support that did not include norepinephrine
