Critical Care and Perioperative Monitoring

Description

The application of advanced technology in monitoring the extreme pathophysiologic abnormalities which are commonly observed in critically ill patients remains a subject of on-going research. Moreover, various techniques are implemented in the pre-, intra- and postoperative monitoring of surgical patients. Invasive and noninvasive methods facilitate the monitoring of nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and hematologic systems as well as of metabolic status. The optimization of oxygen supply to tissues to meet their metabolic needs is largely dependent on the application of effective monitoring techniques. The optimization of macro- and microcirculation can be achieved by the application of goal-directed therapeutic strategies, ensuring thus adequate tissue perfusion/oxygenation.

In this special issue of the Scientific World Journal, we are mainly seeking original research studies as well as review and point-of-view articles which explore all aspects of critical care monitoring in the adult and pediatric intensive care unit, respectively. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Neuromonitoring
  • Hemodynamic monitoring
  • Goal-directed treatment of microcirculatory perfusion, oxygen supply, and demand
  • Pre-, intra-, and postoperative management of cardiovascular patients and the role of left ventricular assist devices
  • Respiratory monitoring and mechanical ventilation
  • Monitoring of the renal system
  • Electrolytes/acid-base disorders/metabolism
  • Genomics and proteomics in critical care monitoring
  • Pre-, intra-, and postoperative monitoring
  • Monitoring in the pediatric ICU
  • Critical care monitoring technology
