Ventilation Strategies, Anesthetic Techniques and Cerebral Oxygenation in the Beach Chair Position


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

The seated or "beach chair" position during surgery and general anesthesia decreases brain oxygen levels and can result in stroke. As such, poor neurological outcome following beach chair positioning is a growing concern. In the proposed study the investigators test the hypothesis that changes in ventilation strategy and anesthetic technique can affect cerebral oxygenation in anesthetized patients in the beach...
