Hemodynamic Monitoring in Noncardiac Surgery

  • J. F. Baron
Conference paper
Part of the Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine book series (UICM, volume 11)


During noncardiac surgery, the main goals of hemodynamic monitoring are first, to detect the occurrence of dysrhythmias and myocardial ischemia and second, to assess normovolemia, to detect hypovolemia and to monitor the correction of hypovolemia.
