PURPOSE: There is increasing interest in using noninvasive ultrasound measures such as carotid blood flow and carotid flow time as predictors of volume responsiveness. While these measures are easy to obtain at the bedside, their correlation with cardiac output (CO) from invasive measures has not been previously demonstrated. This study seeks to compare carotid blood flow and carotid flow time measurements with invasive CO.
