Hemodynamic Monitoring Part I - Waveform Recognition

Our software requires a Windows operating system and run from a hard drive or network drive.

Pressure Monitoring Systems: This section presents the component parts of a pressure monitoring system, a graphic example of a complete arterial pressure monitoring system and pulmonary artery pressure monitoring system, and examples for troubleshooting the system.

The Multi-Lumen Catheter: The Multi-Lumen Catheter section includes indications for PA catheterization, risks/complications of PA catheterization, vascular access - insertion sites for PA catheterization, component parts of the multi-lumen PA catheter, and catheter insertion and flotation through the heart. Also included in this section are the pulmonary zones of perfusion. Through graphics and computerized animation, the user is shown catheter insertion through the heart and the characteristic waveforms produced.

Arterial Blood Pressure Waveforms: This section presents the indications for arterial cannulation, vascular access - insertion sites for arterial cannulation, risks/complications of arterial cannulation, interpreting the arterial waveform, electrocardiogram correlation with arterial waves, and abnormal arterial waveforms. The arterial waveforms are set in motion with s simple mouse click!

Central Venous Waveforms, Right Ventricular Waveforms, Pulmonary Artery Waveforms, and Pulmonary Wedge Waveforms: These sections include the following:

  • An explanation of the component parts of the waveform and how they are formed from the pressure changes occurring within the heart.
  • Electrocardiogram correlation with the waveform.
  • How to correctly read and interpret the pressure values.
  • Practice waveforms.
  • Significance of abnormal findings.
Respiratory Influence on Waveforms: The Respiratory Influence on Waveforms section explains how to accurately read pressure values during spontaneous inspiration and during mechanical ventilation. Practice waveforms are included.

Comprehensive Review Quiz: The Comprehensive Review Quiz contains a test bank of 100 test questions and waveforms obtained from all sections of Hemodynamic Monitoring - Part I. The test questions are generated in a randomized fashion and feedback is given for correct choices as well as incorrect choices. The user has the option of printing a score report after completing the quiz.
