Will the Arterial Line reading be different if the patient is lying laterally vs supine?
No; as long as the transducer is still lined up with the phlebostatic axis point it should still be the same [only the manual/external BP will change]
What does the dicrotic notch represent on the typical arterial line waveform?
The aortic valve closing
Arterial wave forms: normal, under-dampened, over-dampened
What do oscillations after a square test represent on an arterial waveform?
What are the complications of an under dampened arterial waveform?
SBP - over estimates
DBP - under estimates
What does it usually mean to have only one or no oscillations on an arterial waveform after a square test combined with the loss of the decrotic notch?
over dampened arterial waveform
What are the complications of an over dampened arterial waveform?
SBP - under estimates
DBP - over estimates
A-Atrial Contraction [end diastole]
C- Tricuspid bulge/Isovolumic Contraction [early systole]
X-Atrial Relaxation [mid systole]
V- Venous Return/systolic filling atrium [late systole]
Y - Early Ventricle filling [eary diastole]
What is the mechanism by which the CVP is cable of reflecting the functional capacity of the RV?
Based on the
, higher right heart filling pressures are required to maintain ventricular stroke output when ventricular contractility is impaired.
CVP monitoring is used for assessment of blood volume and right heart function.
