Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Permissive hypotension is a term used to describe the use of restrictive fluid therapy, specifically in the trauma patient, that increases systemic pressure without reaching normotension (normal blood pressures). Following traumatic injury some patients experience hypotension that is usually due to blood loss (hemorrhage) but can be due to other causes as well. In the past physicians were very aggressive with fluid resuscitation to try to bring the blood pressure to normal values. Recent studies have found that there is some benefit to allowing specific patients to experience some degree of hypotension in certain settings. This concept is termed "permissive hypotension". This concept does not exclude therapy by means of i.v. fluid, inotropes or vasopressors, the only restriction is to avoid completely normalizing blood pressure in a context where blood loss may be enhanced.
