Therapeutic control of the circulation
- 332 Downloads
By regarding the circulation from the perspective of the venous return, continuous therapeutic control of the mean arterial blood pressure, cardiac output and tissue oxygen flow can be seen to be the consequence of a series of equations based on conventionally measured variables. This approach permits a graphical solution to circulation guidance, open or closed loop control and goal directed therapy of broad general applicability.
