Abstract

This chapter will cover several areas of critical care, including anesthesiology, the emergency department, the operating room, and the various intensive care units, highlighting the neonatology intensive care unit in the neonatology section. The original beta-studies that validated P&S monitoring were performed in the critical care arena, including anesthesiology (FG Estafanous, MD, Cleveland Clinic) and pediatric cardiac surgery (WI Norwood, MD, Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania, University of Pennsylvania). Since the late 1990s P&S monitoring has been validated in the critical care arena under WC Shoemaker, MD, Los Angeles County, and University of Southern California Hospital, specifically in the areas of trauma and sepsis. This chapter will also discuss hypovolemia, hypoxia, heart transplantation, pediatrics, neonatology, and brain and closed head injury.
