BACKGROUND Standard non-invasive arterial pressure (AP) measurements are discontinuous. By providing non-invasive beat-to-beat AP measurements, Nexfin™ might limit duration of intraoperative hypotension and hypertension. We assessed the ability of Nexfin™ to detect AP variations by comparing its trending ability with invasive AP monitoring. METHODS Thirty-one subjects undergoing elective surgery under general anaesthesia were included. During induction, simultaneous pairs of AP measurements… CONTINUE READING
