Accurate assessment of a patient's volume status, as well as whether they will respond to a fluid challenge with an increase in cardiac output, is a critical task in the care of critically ill patients. Despite this, most decisions regarding fluid therapy are made either empirically or with limited and poor data. Given recent data highlighting the negative impact of either inadequate or overaggressive fluid therapy, understanding the tools and techniques available for accurate volume assessment is critical. This review highlights both static and dynamic methods that can be utilized to help in the assessment of volume status.Kidney International advance online publication, 9 January 2013; doi:10.1038/ki.2012.424.
