This discussion was for the 2017 Critical Care Transport Medicine Conference held in San Antonio, TX. This was my first time speaking at this conference. In this 30 minute discussion, it was my attempt to put in perspective hemodynamic support requirements for patients with implanted Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVAD).
