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.
