The infusion therapy in surgical patients with regard to monitoring of stroke volume and cardiac output


The infusion therapy is the most important element of complex treatment of surgical patients at the stage of preparation to operation and narcosis directly during operation and also in post-operational period. Number of clinical situations dictates necessity of implementation of massive infusion therapy for urgent replacement of volume of circulating blood. In these cases, is extremely important comparison of velocity and volume of introduction of infusion mediums with capacity of human cardiovascular system adequately receive infusion load. This is an important clinical problem especially because of increasing in the structure of surgical patients of elder age and persons suffering with cardiovascular diseases. The article considers actual approaches to monitoring of stroke volume and cardiac output during infusion therapy in surgical patients under out-cardiosurgery operations.
