Abstract

Aim and background: The correct management of delivery and anesthesia is important for maternal and fetal health outcome during cesarean section. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of spinal anesthesia with plain bupivacaine, bupivacaine+25 µg fentanyl and bupivacaine+12.5 µg fentanyl on the newborn Apgar score during elective cesarean section. Methods and Materials: This study was a randomized double blinded clinical trial on 120 women aged 20-40 years, ASA 1&2 who were admitted for elective cesarean section. Patients were allocated into three equal groups (n=40). Spinal anesthesia was applied by plain bupivacaine (group 1), bupivacaine+12.5 µg fentanyl (group 2), bupivacaine+25 µg fentanyl (group 3). The 1stand 5thminute Apgar scores, demographic variables and other variables were recorded during the operation. The statistical analysis was applied by ANOVA using SPSS 16.00 software. Findings: The three groups were similar regarding age, weight and height. Apgar scores at 1 and 5 minutes were ن ا 3ئ ا ن among the three groups. conclusions: Adding doses of 12.5 and 25 microgram fentanyl to intrathecal bupivacaine did not have any ن 3 ل ن side effects in the parturient.
