We thank Dr. Jacquet-Lagrèze et al. for their interest in our recent article1  and are happy to respond to their comments.
We fully agree with Dr. Jacquet-Lagrèze et al. on the pivotal value of Standards for Reporting Diagnostic Accuracy Studies2  to improve the quality of diagnostic accuracy studies. As clearly mentioned in the article, inclusions were conducted over a 1-yr period among nonconsecutive patients, and only 28 patients were included. As stated in the Discussion section, we therefore cannot exclude the possibility of selection bias.
We respectfully fully disagree with Dr. Jacquet-Lagrèze et al. when they claimed that the studies cited in the article do not support the rationale to define responders to volume expansion as an increase of stroke volume of 10% or more. We invite the authors to read these recommendations3,4  carefully and many other publications on the subject.5
