Spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section. The influence of hypotension on neonatal outcome

B C CorkeM H Alper


The effect upon the neonate of a short period of maternal hypotension sustained during the initiation of spinal analgesia for Caesarean section was studied. Babies born to mothers with hypotension were significantly more acidotic than controls although acid-base levels were still within normal limits. Neurobehavioural studies were found to be normal in both groups at 4 and 24 hours. It was concluded that a short period (less than 2 minutes) of hypotension was not harmful to the neonate.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
