Brief Summary: Doses of intrathecal bupivacaine based on patients either height or height and weight has shown to lower the risk of maternal hypotension with similar quality of anesthesia compared to conventional doses.

In clinical practice there is a tendency of reducing the dose of bupivacaine as either low fixed dose or using the doses based on either height and weight or height (0.06mg/cm) alone in parturient with short stature. However, there is lack of evidence regarding the appropriate dose required in this group of patients. Therefore, our aim is to compare the height versus height and weight based intrathecal bupivacaine dose for elective caesarean on maternal haemodynamics in short stature patients.

Conditions:
  • Maternal Hypotension After Spinal Anesthesia
