Answer

Central venous or pulmonary artery pressure monitoring may be indicated in critical cases. A central venous pressure (CVP) of 5 mm Hg in women with no heart disease indicates sufficient intravascular volume, and maintenance fluids alone are sufficient. Total fluids should generally be limited to 80 mL/h or 1 mL/kg/h.
