Abstract

Hemodynamic monitoring is an integral part of intensive care unit (ICU) management. These monitoring devices, if applied injudiciously, may also be harmful. Need for invasive monitoring should be assessed carefully, and its indication should be documented clearly. Attention to technical details, correct interpretation of the data, and its application in selecting an intervention should be individualized within the clinical context.
