Invasive hemodynamic monitoring was performed on 220 critically ill surgical patients judged by clinical evaluation to have a high likelihood of surgical complications or death. Patients with markedly abnormal preoperative hemodynamic values were excluded from analysis. Data were separated into preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative time intervals and the mean value of each variable for each patient at each time period was computed. In comparison to survivors, the nonsurvivors generally… CONTINUE READING
