Abstract

Background/aim: Anesthesia-induced hypotension may have negative consequences in geriatric patients. Therefore, predicting hypotension remains an important topic for anesthesiologists. Pleth Variability Index (PVI) measurement provides information about the fluid status and vascular tonus of patients. In this study, the ability of the Pleth Variability Index to predict hypotension after general anesthesia induction was evaluated.
