Non-elective Cesarean Delivery
We will only enroll patients undergoing non-elective CS with an 'epidural top-up' for surgical anesthesia. By definition, our study will only apply to laboring women with working labor epidurals (which were provided for labor analgesia).
- Estimated blood loss; Coagulation data (Thromboelastography, Laboratory) [ Time Frame: pre and post cesarean delivery, an expected average of 75 minutes ]This study will allow us to collect more information about the hemostatic effects that occur during non-elective Cesarean delivery. This information will add to current knowledge base (which we have published) about coagulation changes in the peripartum period in patients undergoing non-elective Cesarean section.
- Hematologic indices [ Time Frame: Pre and post cesarean delivery, an expected average of 75 minutes ]Hematologic indices will include: Hemoglobin concentration and platelet count.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
