Neuraxial analgesia and anaesthesia in an obstetric patient is associated with the risk of accidental dural puncture and subsequent development of a post dural puncture headache (PDPH). The management of accidental dural puncture requires consists of prevention of PDPH, patient’s information, early diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring until remission of PDPH. Continue reading
Obstetric haemorrhage is the leading cause of mortality in parturients. In massive haemorrhage, fibrinogen is the first coagulation factor to decrease and a value < 2 gr/lt is a prognostic indicator of severe haemorrhage. A small decrease in fibrinogen leads to an increased effect on coagulability and continued haemorrhage. Coagulation disorders may be due to either consumption of coagulation factors or dilution. The type, severity and time of onset of the coagulation disorder depend on both the size and the cause of the haemorrhage. Early recognition of the cause of haemorrhage, low fibrinogen and its immediate correction are essential in the perioperative management of haemorrhage. Continue reading

We have assessed intubating conditions and haemodynamic changes in three groups of 30 ASA I or II patients after induction of anaesthesia with propofol 2 mg*kg-1, remifentanil 0.5 μg*Kgr-1 and rocuronium 0,6 mg*kg-1 (group R), propofol 2 mg*kg-1 and remifentanil 1.5 μg*Kgr-1 (group F) and propofol 2 mg*kg-1, remifentanil 1.5 μg*Kgr-1 and midazolam 0.015 mg*kg-1 (group M).
