Hemodynamic Monitoring and Diagnostics provides a systematic review of the current technologies used to determine the cardiovascular and pulmonary status of the cardiac surgery patient. This course describes the principles of the technology and how to appropriately interpret the acquired data so as to assess the status of the cardiac surgery patient.
This is an online course and requires computer and internet access. This course is reserved for students who were accepted into the January 2018 intake of the Cardiovascular Perfusion Advanced Specialty Certificate program.
