An understanding of cardiac hemodynamics is fundamental to caring for patients with a broad range of cardiac and non-cardiac conditions including shock, pericardial disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, and infection. The cardiac catheterization laboratory is the traditional venue for measuring and defining a patient’s hemodynamics. In this course, we will describe the methods and pitfalls of hemodynamic assessment.
