H C Wallenburg
European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology 1991, 42 Suppl: S45-51

In addition, precise hemodynamic information must be indispensable to determine and monitor treatment.

To maintain and expand the necessary skills and experience, invasive hemodynamic monitoring should be centralized in obstetric intensive care units.
