  1. Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. ΔPP, respiratory-induced variations in pulse pressure; CO, cardiac output; HR, heart rate; LVEF, left ventricular fraction ejection; MAP, mean arterial pressure; NE(+), patients receiving norepinephrine; NE(-), patients not receiving norepinephrine; PI, Pulsatility Index; PVI, Pleth Variabilty Index.
