Physiological Determinants of Hemodynamic Parameters
Hemodynamic treatment and monitoring are now possible to perform in any Institution, not only in specialized units. This spreading of the techniques is undoubtedly extremely positive in the care of critically ill patients . Moreover, the fantastic progress in technologies and in pathophysiology allows the clinician to integrate and to understand more and more informations. To be truthful, it is frequently the manufacturer who stimulates the intensivist and not the intensivist who stimulates the manufacturer.
