2022 Stronger - PH341 - Prediction Software Helps Reduce Hypotension and Improve Outcomes
During surgery, blood pressure management varies among clinicians across various health care settings. This variation is not benign because hypotension is common and can lead to severe complications, such as myocardial and kidney injury, delirium, and even mortality. Also, hypotension increases hospital costs. Hypotension prediction index software alerts clinicians to a future hypotensive event, while a standardized treatment algorithm guides the therapeutic intervention. In a large multicenter clinical trial, use of this proactive, data-driven system reduced hypotension. Such innovative technology can reduce care variation and improve surgical patient outcomes.
