More hemodynamic monitoring for personalized treatment in circulatory failure
Every day decisions are made on the optimal hemodynamic management in critically ill patients. In the present issue, experts share their opinion on optimal hemodynamic management. The opinions begin with the role of physical examination and end with current evidence on treatment. In summary, it can be concluded that decisions on hemodynamics shift from uniform protocols for groups of patients to personalized care . Personalized care consists of decisions for individuals based on underlying pathophysiological concepts and the best available evidence. These decisions could be improved by incorporating artificial intelligence into the diagnostics . A requisite for optimized diagnostics is imputing sound data into the analysis. For hemodynamic monitoring, this includes variables derived from physical examination, physiological examination, and advanced monitoring techniques that have proven accuracy and trending ability.
