Abstract

Background and aim: Inferior vena cava (IVC) measurements by ultrasonography (USG) is a repeatable and noninvasive tool but it is sonographer dependent and requires experience. The aim of this study is to investigate the interrater reliability of IVC-USG measurements performed by intensive care fellows.
