While measuring SVO2 requires a PAC, a central venous saturation appears to be a reliable substitute and requires only placement of a CVC into the superior vena cava. Thus, CVC sampling of the SCVO2 allows qualitative assessment of cardiac output which, unless future studies identify an optimal cardiac output, may be just as useful as the quantitative information obtained from a PAC. ALTERNATINGS TO THE PAC • The second component of invasive monitoring, assessing intravascular filling pressures, has long been the realm of the PAC.

However, combining a noninvasive transthoracic echocardiogram with a CVC may provide equivalent data. • Both PACs and CVCs suffer the same limitation when attempting to assess intravascular volume: they only measure intravascular filling pressure when what is really needed is volume. , mechanical ventilation with high positive airway pressures, tension pneumothorax, cardiac tamponade, and abdominal compartment syndrome). In such cases, recognition of variation in intravascular pressure with the respiratory cycle may be more important than absolute values.
