Subsequent sections include discussions of cardiac output, shock, hemostasis, renal dysfunction, arrhythmias, and the use of adrenergic drugs. Complex problems such as myocardial oxygen supply and demand factors, the relationship of preload and afterload to impaired left ventricular function, the endocardial viability ratio, and the use of vasodilator and inotropic agents to improve cardiac function are clearly presented. The author makes a strong case for using physiologic temporary pacing when pacing is necessary postoperatively. These areas are important to the cardiac surgeon and his or her colleagues in cardiology and pulmonary medicine.
