Pregnancy is a state, which poses a real challenge to the maternal cardiovascular system. Obstetric patients who are complicated by preeclampsia, heart disease, sepsis, hemorrhage and pulmonary thromboembolism are characterized by profound hemodynamic alterations, which represent the main causes of morbidity and extreme maternal mortality, so there is a need for a correct evaluation and monitoring of these parameters, which is validated in this type of patients. The objective of this review is to describe the technology available at the patient’s bedside for the performance of this hemodynamic monitoring in the high-risk pregnant patient.

Key words: Monitoring, critical care obstetrics, hemodinamia.
