Catheters, Vascular, Blood Pressure

Definition : Vascular catheters designed to measure intravascular blood pressure (i.e., invasive blood pressure). These catheters are usually attached to monitors that display the maximum and minimum blood pressure values (i.e., systolic and diastolic pressures); some of them also display a mean pressure value. Blood pressure vascular catheters are mostly used to monitor the blood pressure in peripheral arteries (e.g., radial artery) in emergencies, surgery, and critically ill patients; they may also be used for blood sampling and/or infusion.
