Haemodynamic changes induced by hyperbaric bupivacaine during lateral decubitus or supine spinal anaesthesia



Haemodynamic changes induced by hyperbaric bupivacaine during lateral decubitus or supine spinal anaesthesia



European Journal of Anaesthesiology 22(9): 717-722



Background and objective: Hypotension, the commonest side-effect of spinal anaesthesia, results from sympathetic denervation. This study compared patient positioning (supine vs. decubitus) on haemodynamic variables during spinal anaesthesia. Methods: After intravenous crystalloid preloading with 5 mL kg(-1), hyperbaric bupivacaine 0.59% 2.5 mL was injected intrathecally at the L2-3 or L3-4 interspace.
