Hypotension after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery occurs frequently. Oscillometric measurement gives intermittent informations. Nexfin, a continuous noninvasive device, could help to detect hypotension.

Condition Intervention
Device: Nexfin

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Evaluation of the System NEXFIN for Continuous and Non-invasive Measure of the Blood Pressure During Cesarean Delivery Practised Under Spinal Anesthesia

Further study details as provided by Hopital Foch:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison between Nexfin and intermittent measurements of blood pressure [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Bland and Altman analysis (bias and limits of agreement). Analysis concerns data from intrathecal injection to childbirth

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the curve between both measurements [ Time Frame: two years ]
    Analysis concerns data from intrathecal injection to childbirth

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
