Why is My Patient Hypotensive and Does it Matter? (ASA 2017)

Summary

Summary

Intended for healthcare clinicians only. This symposium will discuss how emerging literature is demonstrating that periods of hypotension in the surgical setting are common and associated with patient risk.

Further, significant differences exist in the choice and interpretation of monitoring techniques among anesthesiologists.

This program will review clinical evidence describing the risk of intraoperative hypotension (IOH) and discuss the concepts of pressure and flow to guide clinical decision making.
