Managing hypotension under general anaesthesia

Stacey Parker RVN, ISFMCert (FN), NCert (Anaesth) and (Dent), MBVNA

So, I have given a fluid bolus what is next? Unfortunately, hypotension is a common side effect of general anaesthesia, that can be incredibly detrimental to our patient in both the short and long term.  We may have improved their health and wellbeing through performing surgery but must ensure we do not harm any other part of the patient whilst doing so. This webinar will talk us through trouble shooting monitoring blood pressure under general anaesthesia. We will walk through different causes of hypotension and steps we can take to prevent it occurring. If it cannot be prevented, we will talk through how to treat it, covering careful use of fluids, analgesia, local anaesthesia, and supportive drugs including vasopressors and anticholinergics.
