Critical Care

In a recent editorial in Critical Care, Monnet and Teboul emphasize the value of passive leg raising (PLR) as a reliable bedside indicator of fluid responsiveness in critically ill patients [1]. This is because PLR induces changes in venous return, regardless of the mode of ventilation or the underlying cardiac arrhythmias.
