  • Know about future directions in the field of perioperative goal-directed hemodynamic therapy

About this Webinar

There is evidence that perioperative GDT, i.e., a protocolised haemodynamic optimization strategy for the titration of fluids, vasopressors, and inotropes to predefined target values of haemodynamic variables, improves postoperative patient-centred outcomes in terms of a reduction of complications and mortality. However, despite this evidence, perioperative GDT is still poorly adapted in routine care. Perioperative GDT can especially improve outcomes in high-risk patients having major surgery and if fluids and vasoactive agents are titrated to individualized targets.
