We investigated the influence of aging on the relationship between arterial pressure and skin temperature as a simple and indirect indicator of cutaneous blood flow. Sole and palm skin temperatures, sublingual temperature, heart rate, mean arterial blood pressure (MAP), and the anesthetic level as determined by cold discrimination, were measured before and during minor surgery under spinal anesthesia in patients under 65 years (young group) and above 65 years (elderly group). The sole skin… CONTINUE READING
