Thread: Dangerously high AD blood pressure resulting from wound & suprapubic catheter

  1. #11
    I don/t see how washing around a tube for a few seconds can cause AD. as soon as stimulation stopped blood pressure should go down. Same with wound care but it takes longer. I think other causes need to be looked for. And a doctor visit. That blood pressure can be critical.

I use my emergency nitroglycerin paste when my bp?s top # hits 170. Then, it normally continues rising to 220ish before the paste starts working to lower it taking around 20 minutes. This all normally happens in the mornings while doing my routine of stoma and wound care, etc. I try to have a pain med (tramadol or norco) in my system before hand, but it?s not enough to control the ad hitting. I?d so appreciate any suggestions to help prevent the high bp until I can get over this hurtle.
    Any possibility your catheter is clogging up with sediment and your bladder isn't draining?
