Despite a substantial increase in the number of publications comparing haemodynamic monitoring devices (8), there are several reasons why their appropriate role in clinical practice remains uncertain.
Haemodynamic monitoring will be done during the block every 5minutes for first 15minutes and every 10minutes for the next 30minutes and once in 15minutes till the end of surgery and post operatively every hourly employing multiparameter monitor which displays heart rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, mean arterial blood pressure, ECG and SpO2hourly.
For example, with opioids respiratory depression and non-availability leads to other alternatives, use of halothane was associated with dysrrhythmias, calcium channel blockers produced reflex tachycardia, direct acting vasodilators needed invasive haemodynamic monitoring and lidocaine did not give consistent results.
A PAC was then floated uneventfully into the pulmonary artery for invasive haemodynamic monitoring. Venous drainage for cardiopulmonary bypass was achieved in a standard fashion via cannulation of the superior and inferior vena cavae.
It proved to have a better analgesic effect, reducing the total consumption of postoperative analgesic and prolonging first rescue analgesic dose but a careful haemodynamic monitoring is must.
A detailed and balanced section on blood gas and haemodynamic monitoring of mechanical ventilation is of great benefit.
For example, with opioids respiratory depression and chest wall rigidity were potential problems, use of halothane was associated with dysrhythmias, calcium channel blockers produced reflex tachycardia, direct acting vasodilators needed invasive haemodynamic monitoring and lidocaine did not give consistent results.
