This course provides an overview of patient physiological monitoring, especially the critically ill patient. It covers the fundamentals and laws of electricity and how they apply to perfusion. This course instructs on outputs of various physiologic monitors and analyzers that ensure that the patient is adequately perfused during cardiopulmonary bypass. The course takes an in-depth look at these monitors, waveforms, and analyzers. The student will learn how each parameter is seen and evaluated. The student will also learn how to interpret the clinical data into the decision-making process.
