Session Outline:
Recent advancements in clinical monitoring have provided clinicians with clinical information that previously was unavailable, intermittent, or available only through invasive modalities. . When used together, these parameters may help provide additional clinical insight. In this session, clinicians will learn how:

  • Modern noninvasive technology can provide clinical parameters previously available only through invasive and sometimes more costly alternatives.
  • Advanced noninvasive monitoring can help clinicians make more-timely, and more-informed clinical decisions by providing continuous and real-time data.
  • Studies have suggested that when used as part of a clinical protocol, these noninvasive and continuous technologies may help improve outcomes.
