Fluid management involves the monitoring and measurement of intrauterine pressure and fluid deficit of a patient undergoing a hysteroscopic procedure. In a hysteroscopic procedure, fluid passes through tubes into the uterine vessels, around the cervix, and out via outflow tubes, which results in a pressure gradient. Fluid management equipment gives the physician control of the situation by manipulating the valve to obtain satisfactory distention and visualization. Fluid management systems can greatly lessen the chance of distention due to fluid overload during operative hysteroscopy, as long as the physician pays attention to the information available to them. Both the risks associated with fluid overload and amount of fluid that is able to be in deficit is dependent on the type of distention media used.
