Poster Abstract
Perioperative ischemia is an area of ongoing concern for anesthesia providers. The issue is multifactorial and individual patient risk factors influence both outcomes and approach to care. Intraoperative hypotension is an independent risk factor for ischemic stroke. Response to adrenergic stimulation of the cerebral vasculature is not fully understood. There is controversy on the usefulness of phenylephrine in its influence on cerebral blood flow, cerebral blood volume, and cerebral tissue oxygenation. This study aims to describe the effects of phenylephrine on cerebral oxygenation, identify physiologic factors that influence the efficacy of phenylephrine in preventing cerebral ischemia, and determine the actual effectiveness of phenylephrine at prevention of cerebral ischemia.
