Activity Summary

Parameters made available by Acumen IQ arterial-line sensor offer additional insights when managing both escalation and de-escalation of care. Dynamic arterial elastance (Eadyn) has been shown to indicate if blood pressure will increase in response to fluid administration in preload dependent patients and whether blood pressure will remain stable when weaning Norepinephrine in vasoplegic states. This session will use case studies to illustrate how to integrate this novel parameter. Suggested Prerequisite CERP: Don't Wait! Detect Hemodynamic Instability (Part 1).


  • Discuss how Acumen software may help determine arterial pressure responsiveness to fluid and how this can support the critical care nurse
  • Utilize advanced hemodynamic parameters through a case study approach to see how vasopressors can be de-escalated, utilizing this technology
