Intact hemodynamics results when there is adequate oxygen uptake by the respiratory system, normal cardiac output, sufficient oxygen-carrying capacity of blood, and intact autoregulatory mechanisms to maintain enough oxygenation for normal end-organ function. The current routine monitoring of cardiovascular dynamics in sick preterm and term infants has been based on incomplete evaluation and relies on nonspecific and sometimes misleading clinical markers such as blood pressure. A thorough understanding of perinatal and neonatal cardiovascular, respiratory, oxygen, and other specific endorgan physiology is also mandatory for proper targeted interpretation.
