Figure 1:

Effects of epidural usage on intraoperative vasopressor frequency and magnitude. The frequency of vasopressor use was compared in the following groups: patients receiving epidural anesthesia combined with general anesthesia intraoperatively [Epidural, n=89], were compared to patients without epidural anesthesia or not used intraoperatively [Control, n=14]. Vasopressors were quantified as no usage, Low = < 500mcg Phenylephrine, < 25mg ephedrine, < 2 units of vasopressin for the case. High = any vasopressor infusion, any bolus of epinephrine or any combination of drugs where one drug is a greater than any low parameter. Data presented as fraction from total.
