Many a time we only confused with the signs and symptoms of a patient in hypertension.
Here is a quick way to differentiate which is which. We must first know the difference between each of these:
Hypertensive emergency: the size and increase in the PA or the circumstances in which hypertension occurs, it implies a life-threatening or serious organ damage that requires immediate control in minutes or hours.
Hypertensive Urgency: PA up to be checked quickly (days to weeks). In this situation, high BP is a potential risk, but has not yet caused severe organ damage. And we add a third concept that leads to let you monitor a patient.
Severe hypertension: high BP has not yet resulted in significant damage to the target organs. In these patients, hypertension does not necessarily require treatment in IBS, but requires strict medical supervision and long term. (more…)

Brain care

In an AVE or any condition in which the brain is at risk, may be an aneurysm our mission will keep the brain in a normal state as far as possible.
For this we must obviously keep the pressure normal ranges and do we ensure that measures blood flow and oxygen therefore remain intact.
For this we must perform certain actions:
Normotension (eg. PAM 90 to 100 mmHg or systolic level normal for the patient): Adjust fluid and vasoactive agents if necessary.

  • Adequate ventilation (arterial PCO2 approximately 35 mmHg).
  • Maintain adequate oxygen saturation (arterial Po2 from 80 to 100 mmHg): Use the lowest pressure positive end-expiratory possible.
  • (more…)
