The use of the sitting position in neurosurgery is often associated with decreased arterial pressure (MAP) and stroke volume index (SVI). A shift in blood from the intra- to the extrathoracic compartment may be responsible for this cardiovascular response. However, little is known of the amount of shift in blood volume after transfer from the supine to the sitting position. Therefore, we measured simultaneously changes in intrathoracic blood volume (ITBV) caused by a change in body position in… CONTINUE READING
