Beach Chair And Anesthesia. The main results were that both the beach chair position and PEEP significantly improved lung volumes and respiratory mechanics. Cerebral oxygenation in the beach chair position.
Beach chair positioning during general anesthesia is associated with cerebral oxygen desaturation. Shoulder Surgery in the Beach Chair Position Is Associated with Diminished Cerebral Autoregulation but No Differences in Postoperative Cognition or Brain Injury Biomarker Levels Compared with Supine Positioning The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation Beach Chair Study. In patients who are anesthetized for surgery in the beach chair position brain blood pressure can fall to levels below the brains ability to autoregulate.
Side Effects of the Beach Chair Position.
Changes in cerebral oxygenation resulting from the interaction of inspired oxygen fraction F io 2 end-tidal carbon dioxide PET co 2 and anesthetic choice have not been fully evaluated in anesthetized patients in the beach chair position. Changes in cerebral oxygenation resulting from the interaction of inspired oxygen fraction FIO2 end-tidal carbon dioxide PETCO2 and anesthetic choice have not been fully evaluated in anesthetized patients in the beach chair position. Patients are positioned 30 to 60 head-up. Cerebral oxygenation for patients anesthetized in the beach chair position Anesthetic agents have differing effects on the brain but there is no proven benefit.
