During cesarean delivery with neuraxial anesthesia, ECG changes have a reported frequency of 25% to 60%; in this setting, administration of droperidol, ondansetron are associated with...
oxytocin may be associated with....
prolongation of the QT interval,
oxytocin administration may be associated with ST-segment depression.
The addition of sodium bicarbonate 1 mEq/10 mL to lidocaine 2% with epinephrine 1 : 200,000 will hasten the onset of anesthesia when a rapid conversion to surgical anesthesia is necessary.
This combination results in:
results in approximately 90 to 120 minutes of surgical anesthesia.
Sodium bicarbonate cannot be added to what LA?
bupivacaine as it results in precipitation when the pH is raised.
the most common indication for a cesarean hysterectomy.
Placenta accreta is
occurs when the placenta covers the cervix.
Placenta previa occurs
when the placenta covers the cervix.
The classic clinical sign of placenta previa is
painless vaginal bleeding during the second or third trimester.
the lack of abdominal pain and/or absence of abnormal uterine tone helps distinguish placenta previa from placental abruption
mom comes in bleeding with hypotension. what's your anesthetic plan?
-Etomidate (not propofol) ketamine
Placenta accreta refers to
a placenta that is abnormally adherent to the myometrium but has not invaded the myometrium.
In placenta increta,
the placenta has invaded the myometrium.
Placenta percreta is
invasion through the serosa.
placenta accreta, Elective cesarean delivery recommendation;
at 34–35 weeks’ gestation to avoid emergent delivery is recommended.
Placental abruption is defined as
complete or partial separation of the placenta from the decidua basalis before delivery of the fetus.
if patients with severe hypovolemic shock what rare thing CAN happen with intubation
intubation can be accomplished without an induction agent.

how do we guide fluid therapy during amniotic fluid embolus
what are we cautiously aware of

multimodal analgesia statement regarding magnesium administration
magnesium sulfate administration resulted in small reduction in postoperative pain scores and a substantial reduction in opioid use.
what medication has been used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in nonobestretic patients

are IV opioids better than PO opioids
no, evidence suggest IV is not superior to oral
what are the advantages of po opioids
cost savings. facilitate early mobility and greater patient satisfaction .
what is the goal of PCA

what is the advantage of multimodal pharmacological and non pharmacological treatment for pain
optimal approach and should be offered whenever feasible and medically indicated.
low dose IV nitro- when is this recommended
40mcg bolus- recommended to relax the uterus for placental removal when indicated.
placental accreta- what must be immediately available.
PRBC's should be immediately available
patient with placental previa - hospitalized for some time before delivery should have
have at least one IV catheter maintained if bleeding is recurrent or imminent delivery is anticipated
the supine hypotension syndrome is caused by
compression of the aorta and inferior vena cava
how does supine hypotension syndrome manifest
current guidelines recommend that prophylactic antibiotics be administered within
