How Fast Are we? Speed of General Versus Spinal Anesthesia for Emergency Cesarean Delivery: A Simulation Based Study
The researchers wish to undertake a simulation based study to compare the speed of general versus spinal anesthesia for emergency cesarean delivery. Minutes may matter for the baby in an emergency. It is unknown which technique is quicker. Their hypothesis is that surgical anesthesia can be achieved as quickly with spinal as with general anesthesia.
|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Prospective|
|Official Title:||Speed of General Versus Spinal Anesthesia for Emergency Cesarean Delivery: A Simulation Based Study|
16 anesthesiologists will be recruited for the simulation part. 100 women having elective cesarean delivery will be timed in the clinical part.
|Study Start Date:||September 2009|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2009|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Observational study comparing the speed of general versus spinal anesthesia during emergency cesarean
How long anesthesiologists take to administer general and spinal anesthesia.
