Herzchirurgische Intensivmedizin

  • P. Neidhart


Herzchirurgische Eingriffe an Erwachsenen werden heute in so großer Zahl durchgeführt, daß die postoperative Behandlung dieser Patienten für die meisten Zentren zur Routine geworden ist. Trotzdem treten immer wieder Probleme auf, die eine interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit erfordern, v.a. von Anästhesisten, Herzchirurgen und Intensivmedizinern, häufig ergänzt durch Kardiologen, Infek-tiologen und Pneumologen. Im folgenden sollen 2 Problemkreise dargestellt werden, die postoperativ häufig auftreten:
  • die ungenügende Herz-Kreislauf-Leistung und

  • die postoperativ gestörte Lungenfunktion.
