Hemodynamic Monitoring in the ICU

Hemodynamic Monitoring in the ICU

This book describes the pathophysiological significance of the hemodynamic monitoring parameters available to the clinician and their role in providing reliable and reproducible information on the cardiocirculatory status of a patient in shock.

It is explained how measurements of these parameters enable the intensivist to understand the patient’s condition and to make more informed treatment decisions in order to optimize the hemodynamic status and improve the prognosis.

Full guidance is provided on measurement of intravascular blood pressures, cardiac output, and derived variables.
