Hemodynamic monitoring is the act of assessing the cardiovascular values, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and cardiac output, and their patterns. Its clinical utility rests in defining variations from normal ranges and the constellation of abnormal patterns that define specific pathological cardiovascular states, such as hypovolemia, heart failure, and sepsis. Functional hemodynamic monitoring, on the other hand, is the assessment of the dynamic interactions of hemodynamic variables in response to a defined perturbation. Such dynamic responses result in emergent parameters of these commonly reported variables that greatly increase the ability of these measures to define cardiovascular state and predict response to therapy.
