Oakes’ Hemodynamic Monitoring Pocket Guide Highlighted TOC

Chapter Quick Highlights
Overview of Hemodynamics Parameters
  • Detailed table spanning many pages with parameters, normal ranges, definitions, equations
Overview of Cardiopulmonary Physiology
  • Very detailed chapter that covers pressures, expected waveforms, and more – great coverage of preload, contractility, and afterload!
Oxygen Monitoring
  • Pulse oximeter troubleshooting, extensive information on SvO2
Blood Sampling
  • Great summary chart comparing A-Line, CVP, PA Lines (proximal and distal)
Blood Pressure (A-Line) Monitoring
  • There is likely no greater detailed (and summarized!) resource on the insertion, maintenance, interpretation, and troubleshooting of the A-Line.
Central Venous Pressure (CVP) Monitoring
  • Like the A-line, covers in summarized detail: insertion/maintenance, measurement, interpretation, and troubleshooting of the CVP line
Pulmonary Artery (PA) Monitoring
  • Very helpful section, particularly in cardiac care, covers basics of insertion, pressures, wedging, interpretation (waveform, too!), and troubleshooting
Cardiac Output Monitoring
  • Covers invasive cardiac monitoring with values, and causes of increased and decreased measures
Circulatory Assist Devices
  • Covers bedside knowledge of IABPs, including insertion, operation, and troubleshooting
Disease-Related Alterations in Cardiopulmonary Function Favorite chapter of students and clinician!

  • Great hemodynamic presentation of key respiratory diseases, including ARDS, Cardiac Disorders, COPD, Pulmonary Edema, Pulmonary Emboli
  • Great coverage of types of shock with key assessments, diagrams, etc.
