Central venous pressure, a widely used endpoint for volume resuscitation in the critically ill (71), and other pressure-based surrogate measures of preload including pulmonary artery occlusion pressure are dependent on several factors other than mean circulatory filling pressure (72,73) and their utility in predicting volume responsiveness is questionable (74-76).

This, coupled with the capillaries leaking into the pulmonary system; can increase the pressures of the heart and lung, such as the pulmonary artery pressure, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and the central venous pressure, measurements of which all are obtained via a Swan Ganz catheter.
