Use of Finapres during warming for postoperative patients

Use of Finapres during warming for postoperative patients

Masui. Japanese Journal of Anesthesiology 44(8): 1171-1174

We used Finapres during rewarming after extracorporeal circulation in 16 patients who underwent cardiac surgery. In patients with passive rewarming there were no differences in blood pressure measured with a Finapres and that by an invasive monitor. On the other hand, in patients rewarmed with the aid of nitroglycerin, there were statistically significant differences between blood pressures measured with indirect and direct methods.
