Can you check his blood pressure for me when lying down and then after standing for five minutes.

I want his blood pressure in both postures, if possible.

Thank you

he just went to sleep, i could do it tomorrow. so you want it in a prone nature & then standing up for 5 minutes.
do you think keeping him under general anesthesia for 5 hours @ the age of 82 could have done damage?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 11 months ago.

Well, not done permanent damage but could be side effects that can last for up to two to four weeks.

Just keep him well-hydrated.

I think he should be fine.
