Serial haemodynamic investigations were performed in 20 women who had epidural anaesthesia before elective Caesarean section. Cardiac output was measured by Doppler and cross-sectional echocardiography at the aortic valve. Measurements were performed after preloading the circulation with Ringer lactate solution (mean volume 805 ml) and then 10, 20, 30 and 40 minutes after administration of 0.5% bupivacaine. Preloading increased mean stroke volume from 84 to 94 ml and mean cardiac output from 7… CONTINUE READING
