Aneasthetic Management of Primigravida with Moderate Anemia with Thick MSL for Caesarean Section under Regional Anaesthesia
Abstract: Anaemia in pregnancy defined as haemoglobin (Hb) level of < 10 gm/dL, is a qualitative or quantitative deficiency of Hb or red blood cells in circulation resulting in reduced oxygen (O2)- carrying capacity of the blood. Preoperative evaluation is aimed at assessing the severity and cause of anaemia.The main anaesthetic considerations are to minimize factors interfering with O2 delivery, preventany increase in oxygen consumption and to optimize the partial pressure of O2 in the arterial blood. Both general anaesthesia and regional anaesthesia can be employed judiciously.we report here in 30 year old primigravida booked case with POG 39 weeks with moderate anemia with thick MSL with adequate fetal heart rate posted for Caesarean section under regional anaesthesia.
