From: Functional hemodynamic tests: a systematic review and a metanalysis on the reliability of the end-expiratory occlusion test and of the mini-fluid challenge in predicting fluid responsiveness

Fig. 2

Pooled ROC curves of EEOT and mini-FC. Pooled receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves of end-expiratory occlusion test (EEOT) [left panel, eight studies, area under the ROC curve = 0.96 (solid blue line) (95%CI 0.92–1.00; dashed blue lines)] and mini-fluid challenge (mini-FC) [right panel, seven studies, area under the ROC curve = 0.91 (solid blue line) (95%CI 0.85–0.97; dashed blue lines)] constructed by considering the hemodynamic effects of the EEOT or mini-FC on stroke volume or its surrogates and those induced by fluid challenge administration. Red circles represent each study included in the metanalysis and the size of each solid circle indicates the size of each study (software MetaDiSC®, version 1.4, see text and Table 3 for details)
