Sir in class you told pcwp is better but not commonly used as it's a difficult process so cvp is commonly used so which one should be followed?

Question:
Best guide for monitoring hemodynamic changes during volume expansion (during volume resuscitaion):
Options:
A) Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure
B) Central venous pressure
C) Jugular venous pressure
D) Radial arterial pulsations
Solution:
Earlier CVP was considered the best guide to Volume resuscitation.


However, PCWP is considered the best guide as it can also determine the left ventricular preload. Urine output is the best assessment for perfusion.
