The clinical assessment of a patient’s volume status using physical examination and vital signs is often misleading. Bedside patient examination is only 30–50% accurate and clinical tests for assessing hypovolemia suffer from excessive observer bias and variability as well as poor reproducibility, interobserver agreement and sensitivity.
