Activity Summary

Parameters available when using Acumen IQ arterial-line sensor offer additional insights when investigating and managing the root cause of hemodynamic instability. This session will review the value of using parameters such as Cardiac Output, Stroke Volume, HPI, dP/dt, and Eadyn in the assessment of the critically ill patient. Utilization will be illustrated through case studies to better understand their application. Suggested follow up CERP: Don't Wait! Detect Hemodynamic Instability (Part 2).
