ASA(American Society of Anesthesiologists) annual meeting 2022/Noninvasive Continuous Monitoring to Improve Outcome of Preeclamptic Women Undergoing Spinal Anesthesia for Cesarean Section


ASA annual meeting

Date of original Performance / Presentation



Spinal induced hypotension is a common side effect and occurs in up to 33% of patients. Preeclamptic women have a high risk of severe hypotension related to spinal anesthesia while undergoing cesarean section Hypotension, short or cumulative episodes, increase nausea and vomiting in parturient and can potentially result in fetal acidosis, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy(HIE), and lower Apgar scores. The recommend standard of care is a minimum of five-minute interval blood pressure monitoring which risks late detection and treatment of hypotension. ClearSight® noninvasive continuous hemodynamic monitoring decreases the risk of hypotension-associated complications in mother and fetus and improves maternal nausea and vomiting during cesarean sections under spinal anesthesia.
