Critically ill patients often require multiple organ supports; respiratory support in terms of mechanical ventilation (MV) is one of the commonest. But, only providing organ support contributes less to the complete well being of the patients. Moreover, MV itself can affect various physiological systems, metabolic response, and cause side effects. A very close temporal relationship exists between patients, monitoring and management decision too, and therefore, appropriate information from monitoring can lead to better outcomes. The present review is intended to briefly highlight the current opinions and strategies for non-cardio-respiratory monitoring in such critically ill patients.
