Technical Aspects of Haemodynamic Monitoring
Measurements are frequently made of pulmonary artery pressure (PAP), systemic arterial, central venous (CVP), and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (WP) in the critically ill patient. In our rapidly evolving technological world, intravascular pressure monitoring is substantially unchanged, in contrast with the fields of imaging or surgery. Despite noteworthy advances in tip transducers catheter technology, fluid filled manometer systems are widely used for clinical cardiovascular monitoring purposes.
