  1. Nor-epinephrine versus vasopressin infusion for prevention of spinal-induced hypotension: a placebo-controlled study

    Nor-epinephrine versus vasopressin infusion for prevention of spinal-induced hypotension: a placebo-controlled study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Objectives: To evaluate the prophylactic effect of norepinephrine (NE) and vasopressin (VP) infusion on frequency and severity of spinal anaesthesia-induced hypotension (SAIH).
  2. Peripheral nerve stimulator-induced electrostimulation at the P6 point reduces the incidence of post-spinal hypotension in patients undergoing post-trauma orthopaedic surgery

    Peripheral nerve stimulator-induced electrostimulation at the P6 point reduces the incidence of post-spinal hypotension in patients undergoing post-trauma orthopaedic surgery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Objectives: Sympathetic block following spinal anaesthesia is often associated with a fall in blood pressure. This fall has been shown to be attenuated by using transcutaneous nerve stimulation at the P6 point in patients receiving spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section...
  3. Predicting spinal hypotension during Caesarean section

    Predicting spinal hypotension during Caesarean section

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Hypotension under spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section remains a common problem, with attendant maternal and foetal morbidity. This review examines some of the issues surrounding the prediction of spinal hypotension, including concerns about current evidence, the debate on the mechanism...
  4. Hypotension during spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section in a resource-limited setting: towards a consensus definition

    Hypotension during spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section in a resource-limited setting: towards a consensus definition

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Intraoperative hypotension following spinal anaesthesia for Caesarean section is associated with maternal morbidity and mortality. Because of inconsistent definitions the reported incidence of hypotension varies between 7% and 74%, making it almost impossible to set standard targets. Developing and...
  5. Anaesthesia-induced developmental neurotoxicity

    Anaesthesia-induced developmental neurotoxicity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Recently, concerns regarding anaesthesia-induced developmental neurotoxicity (AIDN) have emerged. The aim of this review was to summarise the available information on AIDN, and to assist the practising anaesthetist in making safe decisions with regard to the administration of anaesthesia in...
  6. Acute hyperventilation leading to hypocalcaemia during spinal anaesthesia

    Acute hyperventilation leading to hypocalcaemia during spinal anaesthesia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    The most common cause of hypocalcaemia under general anaesthesia is acute mechanical hyperventilation, but hypocalcaemia during spinal anaesthesia has not been reported. This case report describes the development of hypocalcaemia due to hyperventilation in a patient undergoing appendicectomy under spinal...
  7. Remifentanil in a patient with Huntington's chorea

    Remifentanil in a patient with Huntington's chorea

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Relatively few published case reports related to the anaesthetic management of Huntington's chorea (HC) exist. At the time of surgery no publications were found related to remifentanil's use in patients with HC. This case report describes the management of a...
  8. Correlation between spinal column length and the spread of subarachnoid hyperbaric bupivacaine in the term parturient

    Correlation between spinal column length and the spread of subarachnoid hyperbaric bupivacaine in the term parturient

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Anaesthetists frequently tailor the subarachnoid local anaesthetic dosage according to parturient height to achieve sensory blockade up to the T4 dermatome for lower segment Caesarean sections (LSCSs). Studies that have been conducted have demonstrated that height does not affect...
  9. Cardiac arrest during transurethral resection of the prostate: the overzealous restriction of intravenous fluids—a possible cause?

    Cardiac arrest during transurethral resection of the prostate: the overzealous restriction of intravenous fluids—a possible cause?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Cardiac arrest during spinal anaesthesia has been widely reported in literature, with several mechanisms being described. There have so far, however, been no reports of cardiac arrest after spinal anaesthesia during transurethral resection in prostate surgery. We report on a...
  10. Anaesthetic management of a parturient with severe pulmonary stenosis undergoing Caesarean section

    Anaesthetic management of a parturient with severe pulmonary stenosis undergoing Caesarean section

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    We report the successful management of a parturient with severe pulmonary stenosis undergoing Caesarean section. Anaesthesia was managed with combined spinal and epidural anaesthetic technique. During the intraoperative period, haemodynamic parameters were well maintained. There were no episodes of haemodynamic...
