This text presents information about the physiological and technical aspects of haemodynamic monitoring in a step-by-step format. Sample waveforms are provided as identification exercises. Troubleshooting tables should help students and practitioners to solve problems encountered in clinical practice. The text incorporates haemodynamic monitoring parameters and their uses in managing critically-ill patients, and provides principles and techniques for continuously monitoring SVO2 in critically-ill patients. This edition provides information on changes caused by arrhythmias and includes expanded information on new concepts in coronary circulation and new mechanical-assist devices to reflect current practices in the area of haemodynamic monitoring.
