A must for learning hemodynamic waveform interpretation, this excellent text and reference demonstrates the necessity of interpreting waveforms in critical care situations. Step-by-step directions are provided for identifying normal waveforms as well as abnormalities and variations. Technical considerations in hemodynamic waveform monitoring are provided. Integration of hemodynamic waveform values with other hemodynamic data provide the clinician with practical skills to apply in clinical scenarios. These skills are tested in the new clinical application section of the text which stresses the large number of practice waveforms.
