This would depend upon the nature of the failure of the two systems.  The CV system would be monitored through normal criteria, starting with pulse, blood pressure, oxygen saturation.  Then heart function, through eCG, and arterial oxygenation may be studied.

The pulmonary system would be part of this.  How well are the red blood cells oxygenated?
