I'm a new PACU nurse; I've only been only the floor for about 2 months. (Although I have several years of MedSurg experience.) I had a quadriplegic patient yesterday who seemed to be going into autonomic dysreflexia after he had a Baclofen pump implanted. He had a high systolic with a sky-high diastolic immediately upon arrival to the unit. Never having seen it myself, I only remembered about autonomic dysreflexia from years ago when I was in nursing school. The CRNA agreed with me that he thought that's what it was, and our anesthesiologist was quick to treat with an order for hydralazine; he also came and assessed the patient himself as soon as he was free. I was grateful that the pressures resolved within a short while. But i was wondering if anyone else has dsalt with this and if there were additional things I should assess for with autonomic dysreflexia other than BP in quadriplegic patients.
