|Condition or disease|
- Spinal anaesthesia secures full pain relieve and muscle relaxation usually in the lower part of the body. Thus, SPI - a measure that reflects pain during surgery - may not exceed significantly compared to baseline. It may slightly increase only during administration of the block.
- Increasing SPI values due to surgery under subarachnoid block may reflect intraoperative patient's stress mediated by activation of the autonomic nervous system, specifically sympathetic activation.
- In consistence with previously published data no changes of SPI should occur due to standardized sedation with propofol.

Patients undergoing short-term surgery (30-90 min) under spinal anesthesia with sedation
- Difference Between All Groups for the Surgical Pleth Index(SPI) at Defined Timepoints [ Time Frame: Time points for outcome measures: Baseline, before Induction of anesthesia, during Intubation or Spinal Punction, during Skin Incision, during Surgical Suture, during Post Anesthesia Care Unit stay ]Surgical Pleth Index (SPI), derived from finger photoplethysmographic signal has a range from 0 showing the lowest stress level to 100 showing the maximum stress level. SPI was compared between the groups during six defined time points: baseline (BL)- day before surgery; induction (IND)-before induction of general anesthesia or before spinal punction respectively; intubation (INT) or spinal punction (SPA); skin incision (INC), surgical suture (SU) and 10 minutes after admission to the recovery room (PACU). Difference between the groups is calculated using ANOVA.
