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).
