Title: The role of cardiac output and fluid responsiveness measurements in improving outcomes after major abdominal surgery in adults.


Increasing cardiac output during major abdominal surgery can potentially reduce complications that result from a relative lack of oxygen delivery to vulnerable organs.  The compiled published studies showed a reduction in complications in a meta-analysis but this was not confirmed in a prospective randomized control trial.  Separately, a higher cardiac output was observed in patients that had additional intraoperative fluid with a reduction in kidney injury.  The limitations of the technologies used were also studied.  The benefit of a higher cardiac output is more limited than initially suggested and may be influenced by the precision of the cardiac output technology.
