Praised by nursing students for its straightforward language and readability, this interdisciplinary reference on bedside hemodynamic monitoring covers the technical aspects of clinical monitoring, including diagnostic and management principles for fluid-filled systems, intracranial hemodynamics, open-heart surgery patients, pediatric patients, and more! Well illustrated chapters detail exactly how to insert and manipulate catheters safely, read monitors properly, and interpret readings accurately. Precise illustrations deliver crucial details on delicate techniques. Content on the strengths and shortcomings of various hemodynamic monitoring modalities has been expanded significantly in the third editon, and a new chapter on intra-aortic balloon pumping has been added.TOC.
