Brief Summary:
This is a national, multicentre, prospective, open, two-arm, non-interventional study with hospitalized patients, who are treated routinely with cafedrine/theodrenaline or ephedrine after occurrence of perioperative hypotension, wherein the patients are assigned to a treatment arm based on the department.

Official Title: Cafedrin/Theodrenalin (Akrinor®) Versus Ephedrine for Treatment of Hypotension in the Peri-operative Phase in Inpatient Setting: a Multicenter, Prospective, Non-interventional Study
Actual Study Start Date : April 30, 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2017
Actual Study Completion Date : December 31, 2017


Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Cohort A
Patients ≥ 50 years old, with pre-existing comorbidities, who receive general anaesthesia
Drug: Cafedrine/theodrenaline
Drug: Ephedrine
Cohort B
Patients, who undergo caesarean section under spinal anaesthesia
Drug: Cafedrine/theodrenaline
Drug: Ephedrine



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of newly occurring HR ≥ 100 beats/min [ Time Frame: during the first 15 minutes after initial drug administration of cafedrine/theodrenaline or ephedrine ]
  2. Weighted deviation below the individually determined, lowest systolic blood pressure BPmin [ Time Frame: within the first 15 minutes after the initial delivery of the antihypotonic drug as area1 (AUC) between the systolic blood pressure curve (below BPmin) and the lower limit BPmin ]
