    PA catheter and parameters

    Hello all. I am working in MICU and also studying critical care nursing. As far as I know, It's a trend that PA catheter is not used anymore as much as it used to be in the past. But my question is, when you study cardiovascular chapter in the books, a large proportion of contents still covers hemodynamic parameters which can be obtained by PA catheter. (PAOP, Pumonary artery pressure, PAd, PAs, etc.) So I am kind of lost how much I should put my efforts into this topics. (I know I need to study hard but I don't think I can digest all the stuffs without some efficiency!) Thank you so much for reading this.
