Hemodynamic Monitoring

A great deal of time in critical care is spent trying to optimize the patient's hemodynamic status. But to do so successfully, one must understand the principles which underly cardiac and vascular function as well as interactions with other organ systems. In this series, Michael Pinsky, an expert in functional hemodynamics, presents the fundamentals of cardiovascular function, organ perfusion and management of shock in a series of lectures recorded as part of the University of Pittsburgh Multidisciplinary Critical Care Fellowship curriculum. The lectures begin at the subcellular level discussing the determinants of cardiac contractility and vascular tone and extend to the level of physiology encountered on a daily basis by managing intensivists.
