6. Pulmonary Artery Waveforms
7. Pulmonary Artery Wedge Waveforms
8. Respiratory Influence on Waveforms
This section presents the component parts of a pressure monitoring system, a graphicexample of a complete arterial pressure monitoring system and pulmonary artery pressure monitoring system, and examples for troubleshooting the system.

The Multi-Lumen Catheter
The Multi-Lumen Catheter section includes indications for PA catheterization, risks/complications of PA catheterization, vascular access - insertion sites for PA catheterization, component parts of the multi-lumen PA catheter, and catheter insertion and flotation through the heart. Also included in this section are the pulmonary zones of perfusion.
Through graphics and computerized animation, the user is shown catheter insertion through the heart and the characteristic waveforms produced.

Arterial Blood Pressure Waveforms
This section presents the indications for arterial cannulation, vascular access - insertion sites for arterial cannulation, risks/complications of arterial cannulation, interpreting the arterial waveform, electrocardiogram correlation with arterial waves, and abnormal arterial waveforms.
The arterial waveforms are set in motion just as in a real-life situation!

Central Venous Waveforms, Right Ventricular Waveforms, Pulmonary Artery Waveforms, and Pulmonary Artery Wedge Waveforms
These sections include the following:
An explanation of the component parts of the waveform and how they are formed from the pressure changes occurring within the heart.
Electrocardiogram correlation with the waveform.
How to correctly read and interpret the pressure values.
Practice waveforms.
Significance of abnormal findings.
The waveforms are set in motion just as in a real-life situation!

Respiratory Influence on Waveforms
The Respiratory Influence on Waveforms section explains how to accurately read pressure values during spontaneous inspiration and during mechanical ventilation. Practice waveforms are included.
The waveforms are set in motion just as in a real-life situation!

Comprehensive Review Quiz
The Comprehensive Review Quiz contains a test bank of 100 test questions and waveforms obtained from all sections of Hemodynamic Monitoring - Part I. The test questions are generated in a randomized fashion and feedback is given for correct choices as well as incorrect choices. The user has the option of printing a score report after completing the quiz.
