ROC analysis of dIVC for the detection of fluid responsiveness. a Area-under-the-curve (AUC) of dIVC for the detection of fluid responsiveness in all patients 0.815 (95% CI 0.742–0.889; p < 0.001). b In ILVD patients, the AUC was only 0.550 (95% CI 0.283–0.817; p = 0.729). c In NLVF patients, the ROC analysis revealed an AUC of 0.918 (95% CI 0.858–0.978; p < 0.001), which was statistically significant compared with the AUC derived from all patients, p = 0.033. ILVD isolated left ventricular systolic dysfunction, NLVF normal left ventricular function; dIVC inferior vena cava distensibility index
