Documenting and Tracking Patient's Hemodynamic State

  1. Is anyone able to relay information on how to track and document a patient's hemodynamic state-what are the best assessment components? The patient is relatively stable so how often should he be assessed. This is a case study and he has idiopathis thrombocyopenia purpura and is receiving transfusions of fresh frozen plasma.
    Thanks to any information!

    While receiving blood products, you should be performing and documenting VS Q15min.

    After that, it depends on your P/Ps and pt status.

    For instance, in the ICU, we do VS Q1hr and assessments Q2hr. This includes all the VS (except a wedge pressure-we do those Q4).
