In deciding on the method of anaesthesia for caesarean section or analgesia for labour, the risks of the various techniques must be considered in light of the patient's condition, in particular the presence of spinal AVMs or acute cardiac decompensation
, with few publications about the anaesthetic management of parturients with high output cardiac failure secondary to AVMs.
Once intracardiac injury is detected, early surgical repair is recommended to prevent cardiac decompensation
and endocarditis (3, 4).
These events may precipitate late cardiac decompensation
In parallel with changes in cardiac physiology, there are three periods of particular high risk for cardiac decompensation
1,2) These hormones affect the cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems in particular, with the former being life threatening because cardiac decompensation
frequently occurs in longstanding thyrotoxicosis, even without any underlying cardiac disease.
This causes sometimes complications like cardiac decompensation
or disturbances of the circular system, which cannot be handled any more by ophthalmologists.
At the visit after a brief admission for cardiac decompensation
, Frank was clearly rattled.
With the Heart Failure Monitor and new Thoracic Impedance Trend Chart, physicians have access to important diagnostic information that may help to prevent emergency hospitalization of heart failure patients by allowing intervention to occur prior to cardiac decompensation
End-stage heart disease" commonly refers to an irreversible stage of cardiac decompensation
caused by a variety of pathologies that cannot be treated using conventional drugs or traditional surgical treatments.
The increase in cardiac output due to pregnancy and uterine contractions may result into cardiac decompensation
which is better avoided under epidural anaesthesia.
