Methods for Decreasing Injuries Associated with Intraoperative Hypotension

The present disclosures provides methods for decreasing injuries associated with intraoperative hypotension by intravenously administering to a subject a therapeutically effective amount of a fat emulsion, following a period of intraoperative hypotension and after the subject's mean arterial blood pressure has recovered. The disclosure also provides methods for preventing injuries associated with intraoperative hypotension, particularly for surgical candidates that have an increased risk for intraoperative hypotension. Non-limiting examples of injuries contemplated herein include myocardial injury, myocardial infarction, and acute kidney injury.
