Maternal and neonatal catecholamine concentrations, following the use of either phenylephrine or ephedrine to treat a drop in maternal blood pressure after spinal anaesthesia for caesarean delivery, were compared. Patients were randomly assigned to one of two groups: Group 1 patients (n = 20) were treated with ephedrine given as 5 mg intravenous bolus injections; Group 2 patients (n = 20) were treated with phenylephrine given as 40 micrograms intravenous bolus injections, for decreases in… CONTINUE READING
