Figure 1: Graph showing changes in mean arterial pressure over time before, during and after the onset of intraoperative hypotension (IOH), when conventional haemodynamic monitoring is applied. Usually, reactive therapy is applied (red dot) after hypotension has occurred. Yet, if hypotension were predicted in the respective timeframe (e.g., by using the hypotension prediction index), it may have been prevented (green dotted line) by proactive treatment
