Summary: For patients with hypotension, passive leg-raising (supine position with straight passive elevation of both legs at an angle between 10 and 90 degrees) may lead to a more sustained increase in cardiac output than the Trendelenburg position (a total-body head-down tilt between 5 and 60 degrees).
