To understand the various influences on cerebral oxygenation for patients anesthetized in the beach chair position. Cerebral oxygenation in the beach chair position. A Target Plus partner.

In the beach chair position anesthesia-related complications are more common than in the lateral decubitus position including spinal and cerebral ischemia and death. Very Low 5-10 mlPost-op Pain.

Approximately two-thirds of the 400000 shoulder surgery procedures performed annually in the United States are performed with the patients head elevated above the horizontal a position know as the beach chair position BCP.
