  • 1. Post operative complications
  • 2. Hypotension <ul><li>Causes: </li></ul><ul><li>Hypovolemia (most common cause ) it could be due to inappropriate replacement of blood and/or fluids pre and/or post operatively. </li></ul><ul><li>Decrease systemic vascular resistance (residual effects of anesthetics , sepsis) </li></ul><ul><li>Arterial hypoxemia. </li></ul>
  • 3. <ul><li>Causes: </li></ul><ul><li>4. Cardia dysrhythmias. </li></ul><ul><li>5. Pulmonary embolus. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Decreased myocardial contractility (M.I). </li></ul><ul><li>7. Pneumothorax. </li></ul><ul><li>8. Cardiac tamponade. </li></ul>
  • 4. Management <ul><li>Confirm the accuracy of the blood pressure measurement. </li></ul><ul><li>Oliguria (less than 0.5ml/kg/h) which increase after fluid challenge (200ml). </li></ul><ul><li>Low haematocrit. </li></ul><ul><li>Replacement of fluid properly if not benefit </li></ul><ul><li>Put central venous line and measure CVP </li></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>-If Bp was low and CVP high it may indicate heart failure (inotropic drugs). </li></ul><ul><li>If Bp was low and CVP low it may indicate hypovolemia (IV fluids). </li></ul><ul><li>If Bp was low and CVP high or low it may indicate sepsis (proper antibiotic). </li></ul>
  • 6. Hypertension <ul><li>Causes: </li></ul><ul><li>Arterial hypoxemia. </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced sympathetic nervous system activity (pain, bladder distension). </li></ul><ul><li>Preoperative hypertension. </li></ul><ul><li>Hypervolemia. </li></ul><ul><li>Hypercarbia. </li></ul>
  • 7. Management <ul><li>Confirm the accuracy. </li></ul><ul><li>Correct the cause. </li></ul><ul><li>Use Hypotensive agents (Hydralazine) </li></ul>

  • 10. Management <ul><li>Most cardiac dysrhythmias which occur in post operative period do not require treatment other than correction of the underlying cause. </li></ul><ul><li>Patency of the upper airway and good oxygenation could be enough as a treatment. </li></ul>
  • 11. <ul><li>Drug therapies: </li></ul><ul><li>Atropine for treatment of bradycardia. </li></ul><ul><li>Verapamil to decrease heart rate. </li></ul><ul><li>Lidocaine to suppress ventricular ectopics. </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical cardioversion for treatment of hemodynamically significant atrial or ventricular tachydysrhythmias. </li></ul>
