July 2017 Case


A 56 yo patient comes in with hypotension and the question comes up whether the patient will need fluids. You get a picture of the IVC and do an M Mode tracing to determine the volume status in this non intubated patient.

Based on the images, the estimated CVP would be…
  1. 0-5 mm Hg
  2. 6-10 mm Hg
  3. 11-15 mm Hg
  4. 16-20 mm Hg
