Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 68-year-old male with past medical history of diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension, which was presented for correction of phimosis. It says that the patient was instructed to take lisinopril the morning of surgery but still experienced hypotension in anesthesia. Moreover, it states that hypotension commonly occurs during anesthesia.
