I graduated in December and some how landed my dream job in trauma ICU at the only level 1 trauma center within 400 square miles. I understand I'm as green as possible and should focus solely on ICU and trauma related topics but I've been researching anesthesia for a while now and notice a lot of what I'm learning at work has been mentioned and covered throughout many posts on this forum. I'm just now starting to scrape the surface of cvp, pap, pawp, and ABG's. I was wondering if anyone felt like elaborating more on each and why they are typically monitored.

Also, my trauma unit uses a lot of Roc and Prop whether in drips or as a "bolus" for many different reasons. Do y'all have any advice regarding admin of these drugs during head trauma, cv instability or any other information you find pertinent?
