Brief Summary:
In this study, we will investigate the effect of left lateral tiling performed after spinal block on maternal hemodynamics compared to ordinary supine position

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cesarean Section Complications Other: supine position Other: left lateral tilted position Drug: Bupivacaine Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Maternal hypotension is a common complication after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery (CD). Aortocaval compression is one of the theoretical mechanisms precipitating for post-spinal hypotension (PSH) for CD. Positioning of the patients in the left lateral tilted position after preforming spinal block was frequently considered a standard protocol for minimizing aortocaval compression and improve maternal hemodynamics during CD; however, the latest Cochrane database review reported that there is no adequate evidence to support any positioning protocol for prevention of PSH. Moreover, a recent study was conducted in full term pregnant women reporting no improvement in cardiac output with left lateral tilting. In this study, the effect of left lateral tiling performed after spinal block on maternal hemodynamics will be compared to ordinary supine position.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. postspinal hypotension [ Time Frame: 30 minutes after spinal anesthesia ]
    The number of patients who develop hypotension (defined as decreased SBP less than 80% of the baseline reading during the period from intrathecal injection till delivery of the fetus) after spinal block divided by the total number in the group


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. severe postspinal hypotension [ Time Frame: 30 minutes after spinal anesthesia ]
    The number of patients who develop hypotension (defined as decreased SBP less than 60% of the baseline reading during the period from intrathecal injection till delivery of the fetus) after spinal block divided by the total number in the group

  2. Post-delivery hypotension [ Time Frame: 10 minutes after delivery ]

    systolic blood pressure measured in mmHg

  4. diastolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after spinal block ]
    diastolic blood pressure measured in mmHg

  5. heart rate [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after spinal block ]
    heart rate measured in beats per minute

  6. incidence of nausea and vomiting [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after spinal block ]
    number of patients who develop nausea and vomiting divided by the total number of patients in the group

  7. ephedrine consumption [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after spinal block ]
    total amount of ephedrine consumed during the operation (measured in milligrams)
