ABStRAct Aims and backgrounds : Hemodynamic monitoring of critical patients in intensive care units is the cornerstone of care. It constitutes an extensive part of care and is helpful in determination of the causes and the response to treatment of hemodynamic instability. The aim of this review article is to evaluate non invasive hemodynamic monitoring in critical care units. Materials and Methods: 61 articles were allocated to this study with the time frame covered from 1890 to 2010. The references of this review article were obtained from Pubmed, Elsevier, Google scholar, Elsevier mason, Science direct, and JAMA. The authors have also used the keywords including: cardiac output, non-invasive, intensive care unit, oxygenation, upstream, downstream markers,hemodynamic monitoring, minimally invasive methods, and circulatory shock. Findings: The results of this study show that the desirable and premium monitoring of serious patients in intensive care units have yet remained as a challenge. Awareness of cardiac output which is the most important indicator of cardiac function is of vital importance for deciding on the method of clinical management, selecting treatment method, clinical assessment, and prognosis of the patients suffering from cardiac problems. conclusions: A lot of such studies show that the Non-invasive monitoring system of cardiac output is easier, safer, cheaper, and more effective than the invasive monitoring system .If this method is used properly,it could reduce the mortality and morbidity rate.
