1

MAP (Mean Arterial Pressure) of what is acceptable in ICU?

60 - 80 mmHg

Too low (i.e. <60) could mean vital organs will not be getting enough oxygen perfusion, can become hypoxic and ischemic

2

What are the acceptable values for CVP (Central Venous Pressure)?

5 - 15 cmH2O

3

Acceptable values for HR in ICU?

60 - 100

4

What is 'RASS' and what does it range from?

Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale

+4 = Combative (overly combative, violent, immediate danger to staff)
TO
-5 = Unarousable (no response to voice or physical stimulation

5

What is '0' on the Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale (RASS)?

0 = Alert and Calm

6

CPP =

CPP = MAP - ICP

7

ICP (Intercranial Pressure) normative?

7-15 mmHg

8

ARDS can be suggested by a PAO2:FiO2 (PF) ratio of

< 200

9

Normal CI? (Cardiac Index)

2.5 to 4L/min

10

What does Cardiac Index relate to?

Cardiac output from left ventricle in one minute to body surface area [thus relating heart performance to the size of the individual]

11

PCWP acceptable values in ICU? [Pulmonary Capillary Wedge Pressure]

2 - 12

12

CO normal?

4 - 7L / min
