Hemodynamic monitoring is a costly procedure, both materially and with regard to nursing time involved to ensure proper functioning of the monitoring system and correct interpretation of the data obtained. Dynamic response testing is the ideal method of confirming the ability of a monitoring system to accurately reproduce hemodynamic waveforms. MAP is a stable hemodynamic parameter, because it is least affected by monitoring method, catheter insertion site, the dynamic response characteristics… CONTINUE READING
