A Height-Based Dosing Algorithm of Bupivacaine in Spinal Anesthesia for Decreasing Maternal Hypotension in Cesarean Section Without Prophylactic Fluid Preloading and Vasopressors: A Randomized-Controlled Non-Inferiority Trial.


There is a high incidence of maternal hypotension in spinal anesthesia for cesarean section. The aim of the study is to investigate whether there is a height-based dosing algorithm of bupivacaine that provides adequate anesthesia with less maternal hypotension.
