Hemodynamic Monitoring Quiz: Trivia

Hemodynamic monitoring is accomplished with an arterial catheter for continuous blood pressure amounts and a central venous catheter for fluid management and CVP measurements. Hemodynamics is the fluctuating aspect of blood flow. You need to know what hemodynamic monitoring consists of, the purpose of arterial lines, and the best measurement of contractility. This quiz explains the idiosyncrasies of hemodynamic monitoring. Give it a shot.
