Could Duplex carotid ultrasound be useful in the assessment of volume status and fluid responsiveness?

Published:February 20, 2020DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejim.2020.02.006
      Although the ultrasound assessment of inferior vena cava diameters and their respiratory variations have been suggested as a tool for fluid management, recent reports do not confirm its validity in predicting fluid responsiveness in spontaneously breathing patients [
