How do you calculate important parameters like systemic vascular resistance? After watching this video, you will:
- Understand the normal reference values for key parameters like mean arterial pressure (MAP), central venous pressure (CVP), cardiac index (CI), and systemic vascular resistance (SVR).
- Know how to calculate SVR and be aware of the subtle adjustments required in the equation for accurate results.
- Know how to apply the calculated values to clinical scenarios, making sense of hemodynamic profiles and their implications for patient care.
Fluids and vasopressors, that’s the treatment for a patient in shock, right?
Not if the patient is in cardiogenic shock!
In this course, you’ll learn how to diagnose cardiogenic shock, that pesky type of shock that isn’t like the others. You’ll also learn the basic principles of hemodynamic management in cardiogenic shock, and how to tailor treatment for each individual patient.
