Sample text

The balloon is not occlusive (it should not touch the aortic walls). When it is inflated, it displaces 40 ml of blood and is exactly like acutely transfusing 40 ml of blood into the aorta, augmenting each LV stroke volume by 40 ml. Balloon infusion is triggered off the QRS complex from a surface ECG (any lead). The balloon is always inflated during diastole to increase diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and augment coronary blood flow (CBF). Eighty percent of CBF occurs during diastole. KEY POINTS: INTRAAORTIC BALLOON PUMP 1.

How important is sinus rhythm? It depends on the patient’s ventricular function. Induction of atrial fibrillation in a medical student volunteer causes no measurable hemodynamic effect. Your ventricular compliance is so good that you do not need an atrial ‘‘kick’’ to fill the ventricle completely. Conversely, the worse (the stiffer) the patient’s heart, the more you should try to maintain sinus rhythm. We observed a patient with a 7% left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) whose cardiac output (CO) decreased by 40% when he spontaneously developed atrial fibrillation.

Dilation of the right ventricle may cause bowing of the interventricular septum into the left ventricle, thus impairing filing of the left ventricle, decreasing CO, especially if the patient is hypovolemic. c. Incorrect interpretation of cardiac filing pressures: Pressure transmitted from the alveolus to the pulmonary vasculature may falsely elevate the readings. A rule of thumb is to subtract one half of the PEEP applied over five from the pulmonary artery occlusion pressure. d. Overdistention of alveoli from excessive PEEP decreases blood flow to these areas, increasing dead space volume (VD; VD/VT).
