In recent years, perioperative hemodynamic monitoring techniques have made great strides as the accelerating introduction of noninvasive monitoring instruments such as critical care ultrasound. As performing standardized hemodynamic monitoring is a significant routine for clinicians with respective specialties in intensive care unit, these strides enable them to produce better hemodynamic status observation, then provide timely while targeted interventions, and thereby improve patient prognosis. Furthermore, the concept of resuscitation has also undergone a radical transformation, changing from a cardiac output-centered strategy into a perfusion-driven strategy.
To discuss the core issues of perioperative hemodynamic monitoring and invite the clinicians and researchers globally to contribute their latest discoveries and reflections to help advance our understanding of this important topic, we have decided to launch a BMC Anesthesiology collection, “Perioperative Hemodynamic Monitoring and Management”. We hope to take this opportunity to introduce the latest advances in perioperative hemodynamic monitoring in recent years and better inform the clinical practice.
