	abstract = {Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether a 20-second end-expiratory occlusion (EEO) test can predict fluid responsiveness in cardiac surgery patients in the operating theatre.
Methods: This prospective study enrolled 75 mechanically ventilated patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. Hemodynamic data coupled with transesophageal echocardiography monitoring of the velocity time integral (VTI) and the peak velocity (Vmax) at the left ventricular outflow tract were collected at each step (baseline 1, EEO, baseline 2 and fluid challenge). Patients were divided into fluid responders (increase in VTI ≥15%) and non-responders (increase in VTI },
