Some clinicians seek to avoid confusion by 8/8/2009 6:59:40 PM CHAPTER 2 • HEMODYNAMIC MONITORING transiently discontinuing PEEP and measuring Pw under conditions of ambient end-expiratory pressure. Because venous return usually increases when PEEP is interrupted, a low Pw measured off PEEP should indicate that intravascular filling pressures on PEEP are not excessive. Nonetheless, hemodynamic conditions often change rapidly and unpredictably after PEEP discontinuation, and a Pw in the middle or high range is of questionable value.

Over brief periods, fiber length parallels ventricular volume, and diastolic ventricular volume is a joint function of myocardial distensibility (compliance) and the net transmural (“inside” minus “outside”) pressure stretching the ventricle. Just as extravascular pressure must be considered when judging the hydrostatic tendency for fluid filtration, transmural pressure is the effective force distending the heart. The intracavitary pressure at end-diastole (PLVED) pushes the ventricle outward from within and is helped or hindered by the extramural pressure surrounding the heart (approximated by pleural pressure).

Consideration should be given to measuring femoral pressure when the cuff-derived value and clinical impression disagree seriously with the recorded value (generally in the direction of indicating greater pressure than the catheter records). Complications Serious complications can arise due to local hemorrhage, infection, and thrombosis. For this reason, the radial artery of the nondominant arm should be used whenever possible. Although common, regional thrombosis of the radial artery seldom results in tissue-damaging ischemia; digital embolization is the greater hazard.
