ESMA WSM 2018: Intra-operative Blood Pressure Targets

This is a copy of the slides I used during a talk I gave at the 2018 EMSA Winter Scientific Meeting.

The talk aimed to review the evidence of the risks of intra-operative hypotension and provide clinicians with population-specific targets.

Haemodynamic changes reported during gynaecological laparoscopy in earlier studies include an increase in mean arterial blood pressure, a decrease in cardiac output, and an increase in systemic vascular resistance. The authors hypothesized that peritoneal insufflation for laparoscopic cholecystectomy would result in more significant haemodynamic changes.
