Measuring hemodynamic parameters has become safer and more precise than in the past. Accurately monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of fluid, inotrope, and vasoactive medication administration can improve patient outcomes. Arbitrary fluid administration without stroke volume measurement can be detrimental to patient outcomes. Early detection and prompt treatment of shock states is essential to combat deleterious effects on critically ill patients. In addition to measuring traditional hemodynamic variables, the use of advanced variables such as hypotension prediction index, dynamic arterial elastance, and systolic slope can improve the precision of treat ment for critically ill patients. Using predictive analytics can help the bedside critical care nurse provide patient care that is proactive rather than reactive.
