Arterial blood pressure and ICP were already being measured as part of the patients' routine monitoring, so the only additional element was the ultrasound measurement.
Its sympatholytic effect leads to decrease of mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) by reducing norepinephrine release.
Aerobic exercise training improves cardiovascular autonomic control and arterial blood pressure (8).
Comparison of directly measured arterial blood pressure at various anatomic locations in anesthetized dogs.
suggested that levobupivacaine used for spinal anesthesia in the elderly caused lower decrease of arterial blood pressure than bupivacaine [12].

A new easy-to-use index has recently been recommended as an indicator of arterial stiffness (decreased arterial elasticity), which can be obtained from arterial blood pressure records and is easy to calculate.
Even with lower usage of vasopressors in the postoperative period, the treatment group was able to achieve similar primary hemodynamic parameters, such as cardiac index, mean arterial blood pressure, and systemic vascular resistance, as seen in the control group, but also a markedly improved lactate compared to controls during the first 24 hours after surgery, suggesting improved tissue perfusion.
In contrast, the fall in arterial blood pressure, drinking rate, and plasma ANGII that accompanied infusion of CAP into SW acclimated eels (Anguilla japonica), was followed by a rise in plasma ANGII after termination of CAP infusion, but without a concomitant rise in drinking or blood pressure (Takei & Tsuchida 2000).
Arterial blood pressure (ABP) was 110/70 mmHg, and temperature was normal.
