Therapy alterations occurred in 48% (Connor, et. , 1983) and 65% (Waller, et. , 1982) of patients after PAC insertion in two similar investigations. The alterations in therapy that result from monitoring may influence outcome only if the data acquired are interpreted and acted upon correctly. One potential strategy is to use the PAC to achieve optimum hemodynamic and oxygen transport values. A way of determining whether the numerical value of a given hemodynamic variable is within the "normal" range in a given patient population is to look at the outcome associated with the possession of that value.

A yet poorly defined phenomenon of massive fluid resuscitation is changes in the compliance of the cardiac ventricle and the pericardial sac. The consequences of such changes include relative diastolic failure and, in the extreme situation, tamponade physiology. Orthopedic Injuries Orthopedic trauma involving the axial skeleton, as well as the extremities, can greatly influence the priorities in the management of the trauma patient. These injuries can be devastating in terms of pain management, mobility of the patient, and most important, hemodynamic stability.

The purpose of hemodynamic monitoring is to ensure that oxygen delivery is sufficient to meet the patient's metabolic needs. The relationship between prolonged tissue ischemia and subsequent organ injury is well established, and occult tissue hypoxia is the most common clinical event that precedes the onset of multiple organ failure. The value of hemodynamic monitoring lies in the acquisition of data than cannot be gained by a clinical assessment. Celoria (1990) prospectively assessed the accuracy of clinical assessments in 115 critically ill surgical patients.
