Figure 2: Screenshot of the “secondary screen” that is shown in case HPI exceeds 85. Here, a decision tree is provided in order to treat the underlying cause of (impending) hypotension, either by optimising preload (volume administration), by optimising cardiac contractility (inotropic support) or by optimising afterload (administration of vasopressors). These factors are reflected either by stroke volume variation (SVV), by dP/dtmax, or by dynamic arterial elastastance (Eadyn). Additionally, given is cardiac output (CO), systemic vascular resistance (SVR), pulse rate (PR) and stroke volume (SV)
