An Observational Study of Post-cesarean Delivery Respiratory Patterns Using a Non-invasive Minute Ventilation Monitor (Exspiron System)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the breathing patterns of women who undergo cesarean delivery with spinal or epidural morphine for post-operative pain control in the first day after surgery. Some women who undergo cesarean delivery may be at risk for respiratory complications related to opiate administration for post-operative pain. The primary aim of this study is to evaluate post-operative minute ventilation in women who undergo cesarean delivery using a novel method of non-invasive minute ventilation monitoring, and to see if there are predictive risk factors that may predispose women to post-operative hypoventilation.
