On admission, he had persistent abdominal pain with generalized abdominal distension, arterial hypotension
, and hypoxemia but was not febrile.
8) and arterial hypotension
(blood pressure 80/33 mm Hg).
While stroke researchers have noted side effects such as pneumonia, bradycardia (slow heartbeat), cardiac arrythmia (irregular heartbeat), and arterial hypotension
(low blood pressure), these conditions are potentially less serious in the long run and can usually be managed by emergency room physicians.
Condition ICP Changes Rapidly expanding mass lesion Increase mean ICP Increase ICP waveform amplitude Increase/decrease CSF volume Increase/decrease mean ICP Increase/decrease ICP waveform amplitude Little change in ICP waveform configuration Severe arterial hypotension
Decrease mean ICP Decrease ICP waveform amplitude, especially P1 Severe arterial hypertension Increase mean ICP Increase ICP waveform amplitude Severe hypercapnia and hypoxia Increase mean ICP Increase ICP waveform amplitude Rounding of ICP waveform due to increase in later waveform components Hyperventilation Decrease mean ICP Decrease ICP waveform amplitude P2, and to a lesser degree P3 with little change in P1 Jugular vein compression Increase mean ICP Increase ICP waveform amplitude, mainly P2 and P3
Concentrations of these polyols have been determined in blood plasma of patients undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate (3) as a measure of fluid absorption, which may lead to the feared transurethal resection syndrome, involving symptoms such as transient deterioration of mental status, nausea, vomiting, confusion, and arterial hypotension
