Blood Volume Status Resources

Knowing volume status is key in critical care. The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association recommend assessing volume status in all heart failure patients. Even small 10% increases in volume are directly linked to worse outcomes and longer hospital stays. A third of all ICU patients has an episode of volume resuscitation, and a quarter of all ICU patients suffer from AKI.
