Effect of Prophylactic Intrathecal Pethidine on the Incidence of Shivering on Mothers Undergoing Cesarean Section Under Spinal Anesthesia: A Randomized Controlled Trial.


Shivering is the most common and unpleasant complication of anesthesia with an incidence of 70.7% in cesarean section done under spinal anesthesia which is associated with cardiovascular and respiratory complications.
