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

EEOT forest plot of included studies. Forest plot reporting the pooled sensitivity and specificity (green diamonds) of the end-expiratory occlusion test (EEOT) in predicting of fluid responsiveness by considering the changes in stroke volume or its surrogates after the test and those induced by fluid challenge administration. Black squares represent the values of sensitivity and specificity (with 95% confidence intervals; black lines) of each study included in the metanalysis, and the size of each square indicates the size of each study. The definitions Monnet et al. “a” and “b” refer to the two populations investigated in the study [50] (see also Table 3 and see text for details). 95%CI, 95% confidence intervals
