persephone Posted January 20, 2010 Report Share Posted January 20, 2010 I've fainted several times since a general anaesthetic 7 days ago. I've had episodes of tachycardia and hypotension, which I'm used to.But there's stuff that's different too: several times now my blood pressure has bottomed out but I am NOT mounting a tachycardia- in fact the obs suggest that my pulse doesn't change at all.I wonder if the reason I faint is because the tachycardia is not kicking in to compensate for the hypotension.But I'm just wondering WHY would this happen? why would I be unable to mount a tachycardia? It is very strange.Is this simple Postural Hypotension? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
