Hemodynamic Monitoring with Drug Management


PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
-Describe principles/practices for Hemodynamic  
 Monitoring.
 
-Describe the distribution of Alpha and Beta Receptor
sites throughout the Cardiovascular system and their
effect when stimulated.
 
-Describe the nursing role in the assessment and the
 management of a patient undergoing Hemodynamic
 Monitoring with PA and Arterial Catheters.

- Calculate accurately and Within seconds, (utilizing
 the Key learned in class), the dosage  rates for
 vasoactive drugs that must be administered in
 µ/Kg/min.

-Describe the effect of drugs most commonly used
 for manipulating preload, afterload, contractility, and
 for the management of the hemodynamically
 compromised patient.
