Two cases show how the protamine sulfate used to counteract the effects of heparin after vascular reconstructive procedures, can lead in certain susceptible persons, to sustained hypotension lasting up to 3 to 5 days and necessitating vasopressors to maintain a blood pressure level required for the patency of the reconstructed vessel. This phenomenon while not common must be recognized and promptly corrected in view of its inherent danger both to life and to the particular vascular reconstruction.

    Hypotension is type of secondary insult and it is related to poor outcome. The ability to predict adverse hypotensive events, where a patient's arterial blood pressure drops to abnormally low levels, would be of major benefit to the fields of primary and secondary health care. The aim of the...
