Well, this was the most awful experience I have been through. 12 bowel resections later... I hope I never see sepsis on my medical chart!

Swan-Ganz catheter | The pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) is frequently referred to as a Swan-Ganz catheter. PAC is the insertion of a catheter into a pulmonary artery. Its purpose is diagnostic; it is used to detect heart failure or sepsis, monitor therapy, and evaluate the effects of drugs. The pulmonary artery catheter allows direct, simultaneous measurement of pressures in the right atrium, right ventricle, pulmonary artery, and the filling pressure ("wedge" pressure) of the left atrium.

Great chart on sepsis. I had a wonderful nurse identify this in one of my patients as a new nurse (which I did not recognize)…was fortunate not to work with "nurses who eat their young" . Great learning experience that I'll never forget.
