Ok. I understand this helps patient's who have had a subarachnoid hemmorhage. I understand we want to keep the vessels open...hypervolemia and hemodilution. Can you explain the hypertension part? We don't want them to vasospasm. By increasing the BP (hypertension) isn't that putting them at risk for vasospasm?? We do not want them to stroke. Doesn't increasing BP put them at risk for stroke? I don't get the hypertension part. Can someone please explain this??
Thanks very much! Have a quiz on this Monday!! Epona
