    AFTER SURGERY IF BLOOD PRESSURE DROPS AND HEART BEAT DROPS, HOW DO THEY GET THIS UP?

    • The_Beating_Edge_Team

      It depends on the case, but usually low blood pressure after surgery is caused by low blood volume, dehydration, or perhaps the anesthesia or medications you had, or other conditions. Use of fluids and medications can help the blood pressure as well as heart rate. Sometimes a pacemaker may be needed (temporary or permanent) if the heart rate gets too low. If you have concerns, you should speak to your surgeon – he or she can talk to you about your specific condition, what occurred after your surgery, and if you need to be concerned in the future. betsyRN
