Low blood pressure usually occurs in men using certain erection dysfunction drugs during surgery. Thus men should avoid using erectile dysfunction treatment like Viagra and Cialis a day to any surgery. This is because such drugs do not clear from the system easily and are known to open blood vessels and muscle when combined with anesthesia treatment in surgery.
According to news release from American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), this causes drastic drop in blood pressure which is highly dangerous. The presence of nitric oxide in such drugs is responsible for these effects and thus every man using any of such should inform their doctors before surgery. AANA advises that men should stay off these drugs for at least 24 hours before any surgical procedures. According to the president of AANA, Juan Quintana, “patients should never feel embarrassed about telling their anesthesia professional that they use these products.”
This piece is also very important to the anesthesia specialists as it will enable them to plan ahead and make adequate material ready in case of situations like this. This should also form part of the general investigation on the patients before any anesthetic is given.
Juan emphasizes the need for transparency between patients to doctors, according to him every information on medical treatments including the use of herbs and supplements by the patients must be shared with the doctors.
