• Permissive hypotension or hypotensive resuscitation is the use of restrictive fluid therapy, specifically in the trauma patient, that increases systemic blood pressure without reaching normotension (normal blood pressures). (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment of hypotension may include the use of intravenous fluids or vasopressors. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lower MAP group was found to need less total IV fluids, used less blood products, had lower early mortality (within the first 24 hours - which accounts for a large portion of mortality in trauma patients) and trend towards lower 30-day mortality and less postoperative coagulation, concluding that permissive hypotension is safe. (wikipedia.org)
  • hypotension resistant to treatment with fluids therefore requiring inotropes is septic shock. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • Recent studies have found that there is some benefit to allowing specific patients to experience some degree of hypotension in certain settings. (wikipedia.org)
  • Note, however, that varieties of meditation and/or other mental-physiological disciplines can create temporary hypotension effects as well, but should not be considered unusual. (newworldencyclopedia.org)
