Minimum effective fluid volume of colloid to prevent hypotension during caesarean section under spinal anesthesia using a prophylactic phenylephrine infusion: An up-down sequential allocation study.


STUDY OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to de termine the minimum effective fluid volume (MEFV) of hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.4 (HES) infused in a preload fashion which would prevent hypotension in 50% of parturients undergoing caesarean section. A secondary objective was to measure the hemodynamic effect of fluid loading on the subjects. DESIGN This is… (More)
