Abstract
Transient hypo- or hyper-tension often occurs during the perioperative period. Although the anesthesiologist strives to maintain systemic blood pressure within preselected limits, there is no agreement in regards to what those limits should be. Too narrow a definition of target pressures may lead to overtreatment causing an increase in the incidence of adverse effects. On the other hand, a too wide therapeutic window may lead to inadequate cerebral perfusion (hypotension) or various complications related to acute hypertension. In the first part of the lecture we will discuss the controversy related to the definitions of hypotension, physiologic mechanisms leading to hypo-perfusion related adverse effects, and pathophysiology of low perfusion state. We conclude by reviewing methods to determine the adequacy of cerebral perfusion. We will discuss incidence, adverse outcomes and pathophysiology of perioperative hypertension in the second half of the lecture. Perioperative hypertension is common particularly in the setting of cardiac, neurosurgical, and vascular procedures. It increases risk for serious cardiac and neurological complications. Target BP is usually 10% above the patient?s preoperative pressure. APH is primarily due to increased systemic vascular resistance due, in part, to an exaggerated sympathetic response. The ideal hypertensive agent in perioperative settings should provide fast onset and short duration of action, have minimal potential for end organ damage, and have no toxic metabolites. Newer calcium channel antagonists such as nicardipine and clevidipine are well suited for treatment of APH.
