Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate the potency between prophylactic norepinephrine and phenylephrine boluses for postspinal anesthesia hypotension in patients with severe preeclampsia during caesarean section.


Clinical Trial Description

Preeclampsia, which affects 5% to 7% of patients, is a significant cause of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Because of constricted myometrial spiral arteries with exaggerated vasomotor responsiveness, though blood pressure in patients with preeclampsia are apparently higher than healthy patients, placental hypoperfusion is more common. Spinal anesthesia is still the preferred mode of anesthesia in patients with preeclampsia for cesarean section. In preeclampsia patients, spinal anesthesia improve intervillous blood flow (provided that hypotension is avoided) which contribute to increase placental perfusion. Even so, 17-26% patients with preeclampsia experienced postspinal anesthesia hypotension due to the extensive sympathetic block that occurred with spinal anesthesia. As a potential substitute drug for phenylephrine and ephedrine, norepinephrine has gained traction for use in patients undergoing cesarean section. However, the ED50 (prevent postspinal hypotension in 50% of patients) and ED90 of prophylactic norepinephrine bolus is still unknown. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potency between prophylactic norepinephrine and phenylephrine boluses for postspinal anesthesia hypotension in patients with severe preeclampsia during caesarean section. ;
