What does haemodynamically stable mean
If one patient has stable hemodynamics, it means that the force at which the heart pumps blood is stable.
Maintaining stable blood flow in the heart and vessels is vital in supporting regular organ functions including the heart's.
Haemodynamic stability can be defined as perfusion failure, represented by clinical features of circulatory shock and advanced heart failure.
It may also be defined as one or more out-of-range vital sign measurements, such as low blood pressure.
The former President was admitted to the hospital in Delhi Cantonment on August 10 and underwent a surgery for removal of a clot in his brain.
Pranab Mukherjee's health had worsened a day after the surgery and was not showing signs of improvement.
