This synchronized and well-controlled system to maintain a relatively constant blood pressure is altered with the addition of general anesthesia, neuraxial anesthesia, neuromuscular blockade, and the initiation of positive pressure ventilation. No clear evidence exists about the benefit of additional padding at the elbow. In a healthy, spontaneously breathing patient, normal tidal breathing is typically above closing capacity and thus small airways remain open.
