Arterial, central venous pressure, and pulmonary artery catheter monitoring

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hemodynamic monitoring continues to be used in the diagnosis and treatment of critically ill patients. In recent years, some progress has been made in decreasing the complications inherent to invasive monitoring. New technological developments now enable clinicians to continuously monitor arterial blood gas parameters. Despite extensive clinical experience with the pulmonary artery catheter, controversy still surrounds its use. In this article, the authors review recent literature related to arterial, central venous pressure, and pulmonary artery catheter monitoring.
