The purpose of this study is to establish normal postoperative changes in blood pressure in women undergoing scheduled gynecologic surgery requiring inpatient postoperative care. Also, to establish if there is a difference in normal postoperative blood pressure changes between elderly and non-elderly women undergoing scheduled gynecologic surgery requiring inpatient postoperative care.
Percentage of Participants Who Underwent Gynecologic Surgery [ Time Frame: January 2007 to January 2008 ]
491 women were included in analysis. Measure is categorized by the type of surgery.
Secondary Outcome Measures
Percentage of Women With Asymptomatic Hypotension [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
% women with asymptomatic hypotension
Percentage of Participants Undergoing Different Types of Anesthesia [ Time Frame: January 2007 to January 2008 ]
Patients were given either general, regional or local-modified anesthesia care (LO-MAC). Some of the patients ended up getting both general and regional anesthesia (sometimes anesthesia team decides to add regional for postop pain control).
Surgical Time [ Time Frame: January 2007 to January 2008 ]
