Abstract: Background: To compare the effects of spinal anaesthesia with hyperbaric bupivacine with and without fentanyl on haemodynamics of patients undergoing Lower Segment Caesarean Section. Methods: 40 patients were divided into two groups of 20 each. Group B patients were given hyperbaric bupivacaine. Group F patients were given hyperbaric bupivacaine with fentanyl. Results: Patients in Group F had greater haemodynamic stability than the patients in Group B. Conclusion: There is low incidence of hypotension during LSCS when fentanyl is added to intrathecal hyperbaric bupivacaine.
