Hemodynamic Monitoring

Description

Hemodynamic monitoring is crucial in critically ill patients. Prompt correction of circulatory failure significantly improves survival in patients presenting with shock to the intensive care unit (ICU). In the past decade, hemodynamic monitoring significantly changed. A new concept called “functional hemodynamic monitoring” was proposed as an alternative approach to assess hemodynamics at the bedside, using new techniques (e.g., echocardiography) and a qualitative evaluation of hemodynamics. The concept of fluid responsiveness allowed predicting cardiac response to fluid loading, hence limiting excessive and useless blood volume expansion. In addition, physicians understood that the choice of the technique of hemodynamic monitoring should be adapted to patient's needs.

We are particularly interested in manuscripts reporting research articles, clinical studies or review articles on hemodynamic monitoring in ICU patients. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Echocardiography for hemodynamic monitoring: advantages, limitations, and applications
  • Hemodynamic monitoring in sepsis
  • Hemodynamic assessment in ARDS patients
  • Management of fluid requirement
  • Indications of right-heart catheterization in 2011
  • Assessment of microcirculation as a help to hemodynamic optimization
