Hemodynamics, Oxygenation and Tissue Perfusion in Critical Care
April 23 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST
Description: Maintenance or prompt restoration of an oxygen supply sufficient to facilitate adequate cellular metabolism is fundamental in maintaining organ function. This is particularly relevant when metabolic needs change markedly, for example in response to major surgery or critical illness. The consequences of inadequate tissue oxygenation include wound and anastomotic breakdown, organ dysfunction, and death. However, our ability to identify those at risk and to promptly recognise and correct tissue hypoperfusion is limited.
In this presentation Tom will discuss hemodynamics, oxygenation and tissue perfusion using a case review format.
