Hypotension after spinal anesthesia for Cesarean section occurs in up to 90% usually under five minutes after local anesthetics administration. These changes are poorly depicted by oscillometric measurements. The investigators hypothesized, that a continuous noninvasive device detects more hypotensive periods with lower blood pressures.

Incidence of hypotension is high in parturients after spinal anesthesia. Ephedrine could be used to treat hypotension but lead to lower fetal pH as well. This study is to compare the effec...
The clinical use of IL-2 is currently limited by development of dose-dependent hypotension (systolic blood pressure (SBP) < 90 mm Hg). The overall outcome is constant across sites with 20...
Hypotension in patients who are taken to surgery, is a very frequent complication, when the spinal anesthetical technique is used, associating this with significant adverse effects that ca...
Diabetic Parturients are exposed to intraoperative hypotension after spinal anesthesia and we proposed that intravenous Granisterone 1 mg will attenuate the hypotension occurred with spina...
Controlled hypotension is a preferred method for reducing surgical bleeding during septoplasty operations however, the level of hypotension and bradycardia should not disrupt cerebral oxyg...
Falls are a common problem in older people. Postural hypotension contributes to falls but is often asymptomatic. In the absence of symptoms, postural hypotension is only infrequently checked for in cl...
Hypotension compromises local tissue perfusion, thereby reducing tissue oxygenation. Hypotension might thus be expected to promote infection. Hypotension on surgical wards, while usually less severe t...

Difficulties are associated with the diagnosis and management of patients with coma due to intracranial hypotension.
This retrospective observational case series conducted at 2 large academic centers over a 4-year period consists of 15 cases of profound hypotension in surgical patients immediately after initiation o...
A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.
An autosomal disorder of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems limited to individuals of Ashkenazic Jewish descent. Clinical manifestations are present at birth and include diminished lacrimation, defective thermoregulation, orthostatic hypotension (HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC), fixed pupils, excessive SWEATING, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and absent reflexes. Pathologic features include reduced numbers of small diameter peripheral nerve fibers and autonomic ganglion neurons.

Reduction of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure characterized clinically by HEADACHE which is maximal in an upright posture and occasionally by an abducens nerve palsy (see ABDUCENS NERVE DISEASES), neck stiffness, hearing loss (see DEAFNESS); NAUSEA; and other symptoms. This condition may be spontaneous or secondary to SPINAL PUNCTURE; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; DEHYDRATION; UREMIA; trauma (see also CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA); and other processes. Chronic hypotension may be associated with subdural hematomas (see HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL) or hygromas. (From Semin Neurol 1996 Mar;16(1):5-10; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp637-8)
Abnormally low intraocular pressure often related to chronic inflammation (uveitis).
An ethanolamine derivative that is an adrenergic alpha agonist. It is used as a vasoconstrictor agent in the treatment of hypotension.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
