John M. Graybeal, CRT

Recently, there has been interest in having the bedside respiratory therapist directly involved in initiating and managing invasive monitoring systems. Specific techniques of invasive monitoring, including systemic, central, and cerebral pressures, will be presented. The controversies of invasive monitoring will be briefly discussed.
