93. Rosenberg on Heart-Brain Haemodynamics

Rosenberg from BCC on Heart-Brain Haemodynamics

Alex Rosenberg is an intensivist with more of an obsession with all things cardiac, but his experience in a large neuro ICU made him well placed to discuss the interaction between cerebral perfusion pressure, vasopressors and cardiac output. This is an important neuro topic that is relevant to anyone who looks after patients with injured brains.

This is sadly the last talk from BCC3, but don't get too depressed - you can always join us this year in Cairns, or wait for those talks to come out on ICN, and there's always the torrent of superb free media that is flowing out from the smacc conference.
