Clinical Practice

Using Phenylephrine to Treat Anesthesia Induced Hypotension: Is This Best Evidence Based Practice? (.5 Class A CE with .5 Pharm)

Saturday, September 22
9:45 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: Room 311, Hynes

Research evidence and expert opinion are now emerging that suggest phenylephrine may adversely affects cerebral oxygen saturation and cardiac output. The use of phenylephrine to treat hypotension is a ubiquitous practice among anesthesia providers, despite the fact that it has never been shown to improve outcomes. It is important for CRNAs to understand current evidence on cerebral blood flow and on the effect of phenylephrine to reduce the potential for hypoperfusion.
