Hemodynamics :)

Hemodynamics made easy

Blood pressure a. Normal Systolic = 90-140 b. Normal Diastolic = 60-90 c. As BP increases CO & CI usually decrease b. As BP decreases CO and CI usually increase
Pulse Pressure a. Systolic BP minus Diastolic BP b. Normal = 40 mmHg c. greater than 40 indicates decreased Stroke Volume (SV)
SV (Stroke Volume): a. Cardiac Output divided by Heart Rate b. Normal = 60 – 130 ml/beat c. It's the volume ejected per beat
CO (Cardiac Output): a. Heart Rate times SV b. Normal = 4.8 LPM c. More reliable than Mean Airway Pressure (MAP)
CI (Cardiac Index): a. Cardiac Output divided by Body Surface Area (BSA) b. Normal = 2.5 LPMm2 or simply CO/2 c. Decreased with shock, dehydration, cardiac fail, PE. d. Increased with hypoxia, low BP. e. More reliable measurement than CO.
EF(Ejection Fraction): a. % of blood volume pushed out of heart per beat. b. Normal = 65 – 75% c. Reduced with ventricular damage
MAP (Mean Arterial Pressure): a. systolic BP + (Diastolic*2)/3 b. Normal = 70 – 105
Define Preload Blood that returns to ventricles at end diastolic, & refers to stretch of myocardial fibers after it is filled with blood.
PCWP (Pulmonary Capilary Wedge Pressure 1. Measures left heart function 2. Normal = 5 – 12 mmHg (same as PAP diastolic) 3. greater than 18 = edema forming in lungs (if no signs CHF think ARDS) 4. greater than 25 = edema in lungs from left heart failure (CHF) 5. greater t

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
