What vasopressor drugs are used in treatment of hypertension under spinal anesthesia?

What vasopressor drugs are used in treatment of hypertension under spinal anesthesia?

Multitudinous: I think you mean hypotension (drop in blood pressure), since spinal anesthesia paralyses the nerves maintaining blood pressure, and so, naturally, it drops.

In more extreme cases, epinephrine or norepinephrine might be used. ...Read more

My 5 year old has some front teeth decay (doesn't complain of pain). Should I wait for the teeth to fall off or get the treatment which (would involve general anesthesia which am not comfortable with?

Treatment is best: Since tooth decay in primary teeth can affect permanent teeth even before they have erupted, having them treated would be wise. If your are uncomfortable with your current dentist's recommendation, seek a second opinion for confirmation. Anesthesia is quite safe in the hands of an experienced anesthesiologist . ...Read more
