We have compared changes in haemodynamic variables before and during transurethral resection of the prostate in 22 patients under general or spinal anaesthesia. In the general anaesthetic group there was a significant decrease in cardiac output (mean 32% (SEM 5%)) and mean arterial pressure (14% (3%)) after induction of anaesthesia and a significant decrease (27% (3%)) in heart rate before the start of resection. Otherwise, variables remained close to baseline values. In the subarachnoid block… CONTINUE READING
