Abstract

Objectives: A preponderance of literature supports the safety of office-based flexible endoscopic procedures of the upper aerodigestive tract; however, until recently there were no data regarding hemodynamic stability during these procedures. A recent study showed intraprocedure changes in patients' hemodynamic parameters, raising the concern that perhaps patients should be monitored during these procedures. The aim of our study was to determine whether physiologically significant alterations in vital signs occur during office-based flexible endoscopic procedures. Methods: We performed a retrospective review of 100 consecutive patients who underwent office-based flexible endoscopic procedures of the upper aerodigestive tract from July 2010 to October 2011. Baseline values and the maximal changes in systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation were recorded and compared. Results: One hundred consecutive patients were included in the study. Twenty-one patients (21%) had severe hypertension and 40 patients (40%) had tachycardia during the procedure. The mean change overall in systolic blood pressure was 26.2 mm Hg (p < 0.001), the mean change in diastolic blood pressure was 13.9 mm Hg (p < 0.001), the mean change in heart rate was 16.6 beats per minute (p < 0.001), and the mean change in oxygen saturation was 1.6% (p < 0.001). These changes were significant. On further breakdown into groups, patients over 50 years of age and patients who were undergoing esophageal or laser procedures had significant elevations in heart rate (p = 0.01 and p = 0.04, respectively). An elevation in diastolic blood pressure was also significant in patients who were undergoing esophageal or laser procedures (p = 0.04 for both). Conclusions: These data concur with those of the previous report that found potentially significant hemodynamic changes during office-based procedures. Although preliminary, our findings suggest that it may be wise to monitor vital signs in patients over 50 years of age and patients who are undergoing an esophageal or laser procedure who are at risk for complications that could arise from tachycardia and hypertension.
