Brief Summary:
Pleth Variability Index (PVI) seems to be an ideal parameter to guide fluid management: dynamic parameter and non-invasive. PVI could guide fluid management during surgery and optimization of the plethysmographic-derived parameter could improve hemodynamics of the patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Fluid Management Other: PVI-guided fluid management

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 97 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Is Pleth Variability Index Able to Guide Fluid Management During Surgery?
Study Start Date : March 2008
Primary Completion Date : August 2008
Study Completion Date : August 2008

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PVI
PVI guided fluid management
Other: PVI-guided fluid management
Peroperative comparison of standard care with PVI-guided fluid management (optimization of the PVI value with fluid loading)
No Intervention: Control

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Hemodynamics and derived-parameters [ Time Frame: The first 48 h ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. All causes of morbi-mortality
