PURPOSE: Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) diameter and collapsibility index are non-invasive measurements commonly used in the assessment of intravascular volume status in critically ill patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Information regarding the prognostic utility of IVC diameter in septic shock (SS) patients is scarce. We sought to determine the role of IVC diameter in predicting 90 day mortality in patients admitted to the ICU with SS and its association with central venous pressure (CVP).
