You place a swan ganz catheter in a 709kg adult male through the left subclavian vein and get a wedge pressure. The approximate distance into the patient should be:
While trying to treat a patient with severe ARDS, you start to increase the PEEP to improve oxygenation. After doing this, you notice a decrease in urine output. The mechanism of decreased urine output with increased PEEP is:
A patient with ARDS following an inhalation injury has an oxygenation saturation of 90% on 90% FiO2 with an SVO2 of 55. The patient’s ABG is pH 7.35, pO2 of 60, and pCO2 60. The patient has a cardiac output of 5, and a Hgb of 8. Oxygen delivery will increase the most by:
