 FTc is inversely related to SVR
 PV can be used as an index of contractility
 Concurrent shifts in FTc and PV can indicate changes in afterload

Optimal descending aortic waveform signal

 Sharpest sound
 Tallest peaks
 Spectrum of colours

Fluid challenge

 Follow Frank-Starling law
 Look for at least a 10% increase in Stroke Volume after giving a fluid challenge
