In our hospital’s state-of-the-art ICU, we have the capability of doing intermittent or continuous central venous pressures to estimate blood volume in our patients. We are also capable of doing continuous EKG so that we can monitor for arrhythmias in our patients under anesthesia for surgical, endoscopic, and dental procedures. Continuous EKG monitoring is also performed for patients with heart disease and critical patients in our ICU, and for patients that are heavily sedated for procedures such as laceration repairs and other minor surgeries.
