obstetric anesthesic

April E Ronca, Regina A Abel, Jeffrey R Alberts
Our understanding of prenatal behavior has been significantly advanced by techniques for direct observation and manipulation of unanesthetized, behaving rodent fetuses with intact umbilical connections to the mother. These techniques involve brief administration of an inhalant anesthesic, enabling spinal transection of the rat or mouse dam, after which procedures can continue with unanesthetized dams and fetuses. Because anesthetics administered to the mother can cross the placental barrier, it is possible that fetuses are anesthetized to varying degrees...

Ambulatory gynecological surgery enables fast recovery of vital functions, ambulation and a relational life of quality. Patients whose disease is well-controlled at the anesthesia consultation can benefit from ambulatory procedures. Improved material and surgical practices broaden potential indications, limiting the risk of postoperative pain which can be controlled with simple analgesic protocols. The choice of the anesthesic techniques or the agents used during the intervention ensures fast recovery of higher functions...

Severe postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a rare and critical situation which requires fast and well-planned management where close collaboration between obstetricians and anesthesiologists is essential. In case of persisting or worsening bleeding in spite of initially adequate management, the main goal of the anesthesiologist is to maintain hemodynamic stability (fluid resuscitation, transfusion, vasoactive drugs) and optimal respiratory state (oxygenation) and to correct the frequent clotting disorders, whereas the obstetrician and/or the radiologist have to achieve definitive hemostasis...

OBJECTIVE: We report the anesthesic and obstetrical management of two pregnant patients with Marfan's syndrome. An important dilatation of the root of aorta was established at the beginning of the pregnancy. Based on a review of the literature and our experience, we searched for clues to identify the ideal term and the best mode of delivery, and which type of anesthesia may be the more appropriate in patients with aortic dilatation. RESULTS: No consensus can be found in the literature as far as anesthesia and obstetric management of these patients is concerned...

The authors analyze early neonatal morbidity in 87 preterm babies and the values of perinatal mortality of newborns born to mothers whose labor was anesthesized by different methods. The task of this study was to assess the effect of long epidural anesthesia (LEA) used for preterm labor pain relief on the survival of small-for-date babies. Standard anesthesia of labor is compared to LEA. LEA ensured adequate analgesia and stable hemodynamics; moreover, it protected the intrauterine fetus from hypoxic injuries to the central nervous system due to normalization of uterine contractility and uteroplacental bloodflow and relaxation of the muscles of the fundus of the uterus...

We retrospectively studied 57 cases of laparoscopic bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) performed under local anesthesia at the obstetrics and gynecology outpatient center of Winthrop-University Hospital, between May 1987 and November 1992. The mean age of our patients was 34.3+10.22 years and the weight ranged between 48 to 109 kg. Contraindications included history of bleeding diathesis, severe cardiac disease, grand mal epilepsy, or unusually high anxiety level of the pt. All women were premedicated with Anaprox 500 mg po 30 minutes before the procedure...

The hemodynamic effect of prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) and of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) was studied in 12 healthy volunteers admitted for suction abortion at 10--12 weeks of gestation. They were anesthesized using natrium thiomebumal, pethidine and pancuronium bromide. PGF 2 alpha was given as an intravenous infusion of 100 micrograms/min, the dose being increased by 100 micrograms every 10 min to a maximum of 300 micrograms/min. PGE2 was administered with 5 micrograms/min, the dose being increased by 5 micrograms every 10 min to a maximum of 15 micrograms/min...

Analyses of fetal heart rate (FHR) variability, visual evaluation of FHR decelerations, and respiratory gas analyses of the umbilical vein were performed in 27 labors, where one dose (50 or 75 mg) of intramuscular pethidine was used for pain relief, in 47 labors with one paracervical blockade (6 ml 0.5% marcaine) and in a control group of 135 labors without any pain relief. Umbilical vein pH, standard bicarbonate and base excess were lowest in the pethidine group and highest in the PCB group. The duration of labor was shortest in the control group, but there was no difference in the duration of labor of the two anesthesized groups...
