Norepinephrine Versus Phenylephrine Variable Infusion in Cesarean Delivery

Maternal hypotension is a common complication after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery (CD). Many vasopressors have been used for prevention of post-spinal hypotension (PSH) during CD; however, the optimum protocol for prophylaxis is not established yet. Phenylephrine (PE) is a popular vasopressor used in obstetric anesthesia; however, its use is ...

Incidence of Headache Following an Unintentional Dural Puncture

Unintentional dural puncture is a known risk of neuraxial techniques, occurring in roughly 1% of all epidural catheter placements. The incidence of post dural puncture headaches(PDPH) after unintentional dural puncture (UDP) is 50-80%. A PDPH is defined as a headache that occurs following a dural puncture, worsens within 15 minutes ...
