“Preload” and “afterload” issues associated with cardiovascular problems would most likely have been assessed and addressed in a critical-care unit just a few years ago. However, due to the complexity of these diseases, sophisticated hemodynamic assessment is no longer reserved exclusively for critical-care practitioners. Nurses working in step-down, medical/surgical, and even home healthcare settings need a basic understanding of hemodynamic concepts to guide their day-to-day practice. This course discusses cardiac output, preload, afterload, and therapies used to treat patients with these cardiac conditions.
The goal of this course is to equip nurses in acute care settings with knowledge of current hemodynamic assessment techniques and interventions for addressing problems affecting preload and afterload.
