Prevention of Maternal Hypotension During Elective Caesarean Section Performed With Spinal Anaesthesia, Through Intermittent Pneumatic Compression System in the Lower Extremities
The hypotension defined as 20 % less than the basal SBP (systolic blood pressure)and / or an absolute value <90-100 mmHg, he presents an incident of 80-85% after an anesthesia intradural in the pregnant women, fact that worries for provoking undesirable effects so much in the mother and as in the fetus /newborn baby.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of intermittent pneumatic compression system in the lower extremities in order to reduce the vasopressors drugs requirements to maintain hemodynamic stability in pregnant women undergoing elective caesarean sections with an spinal anaesthesia.

|Official Title:||Prevention of Maternal Hypotension During Elective Caesarean Section Performed With Spinal Anaesthesia, Through Intermittent Pneumatic Compression System in the Lower Extremities.|
- The dose of needed vasopressor (phenylephrine). [ Time Frame: From the beginning of caesaria section (usually from 32 to 42 weeks of pregnancy) until the end of the surgery. ]
- Effectiveness of Intermittent pneumatic compression system in order to decrease requirements of vasopressors (Phenylephrine). [ Time Frame: From the beginning of caesaria section untill discharge of the recovery room ( a maximum of 4 hours). ]Intermittent pneumatic compression system in order to minimise the number of episodes defined as Postoperative nausea and vomiting (POVN) and dizziness associated with hypotension.
