PMID: 15163774] McGee S et al: Is this patient hypovolemic? JAMA 1999;281:1022–9. [PMID: 10086438] Peixoto AJ. Critical issues in nephrology. Clin Chest Med 2003;24:561–81. [PMID: 14710691] ᮣ ᮣ ᮣ Edema, ascites, or other evidence of increased extracellular volume Intravascular volume may be normal, low (hypovolemia), or high Potential causes of increased extracellular volume: renal insufficiency, congestive heart failure, liver disease, or other mechanism of sodium retention or excessive sodium administration General Considerations In contrast to hypovolemia, in which there is always decreased volume of the intravascular space, in hypervolemia the intravascular volume may be high, normal, or paradoxically low.

For critically ill patients, rapid decreases in intravascular volume may be particularly hazardous in those with chronic hypertension (associated with hypertrophic, poorly compliant ᮡ 21 ventricles), pulmonary hypertension, pericardial effusion, sepsis, diabetes mellitus, autonomic instability, electrolyte disturbances, or recent blood loss. Patients receiving alpha- or beta-adrenergic blockers, arterial or venous dilators (including hydralazine, nitroprusside, and nitroglycerin), and mechanical ventilation may be very sensitive to rapid depletion of intravascular volume.

CVP and PCWP measurements are most useful for identifying volume depletion, but their magnitudes provide only a rough guide to the degree of hypovolemia. The response to a trial of fluid administration is often the best evidence for hypovolemia and gives a useful (albeit retrospective) measure of the amount of volume depletion originally present. Acutely, such as during hemodialysis or ultrafiltration, the change in weight is an accurate measure of extracellular fluid change, but this may not be true in other circumstances.
