Abstract

Patients with spinal cord injury have a high risk of cardiovascular complications. Complex anatomy and physiology of the brain and spinal cord make it difficult to understand the pathophysiological changes and the complications of an injury to the spinal cord. This review was aimed to analyse the pertinently available research and clinical studies that demonstrate the cardiovascular complications of spinal cord injury and to synthesize the available evidence on how seriously spinal cord injury affects the cardiovascular system and how it can be managed. A comprehensive literature search was made in following databases like Google Scholar, Cochrane, J- Gate, ProQuest, PubMed, Web of Science and Science Direct for retrieving the related studies. In the included studies, data were extracted and evaluated according to the objective. Narrative analysis was adopted to write this review. Patients with spinal cord injury and cardiovascular complications have a poor prognosis and require quality care for maximizing patients’ survival. With a thorough knowledge and discernment of care of such patients, nurses can improve these patients’ neurological outcomes. A detailed understanding of cardiovascular impairment following SCI is significant for establishing a diagnosis and improving clinical outcomes.
