INTRODUCTION: The optimal management of hemodynamic disorders among critically ill patients requires an accurate assessment of hemodynamic status. Global end diastolic index (GEDI) is taken for a more reliable indicator of preload in critically ill patients than CVP and doctors tend to arrange it among the normal ranges (680～800 ml/m2). Here we report a case with a relatively extremely high GEDI that initially erroneously led to a fluid restrictive treatment.
