Studies show associations between intraoperative hypotension and:
Increased risk of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)
Cardiac & Non-Cardiac Surgery1
Myocardial Injury MINS
Leading cause of post-operative mortality within 30 days after surgery1
Cleveland Clinic researchers discovered that:2
- Continuous noninvasive monitoring reduced the amount of IOH by nearly half when compared to intermittent blood pressure monitoring.
- Early detection of hypotension by continuous hemodynamic monitoring allows for timely remedial actions, thereby reducing IOH.
Clarity through advanced hemodynamic parameters CO, SV, SVV, and SVR can help you determine if the cause of IOH is preload, afterload, or contractility.
