ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01669135
First received: August 8, 2012
Last updated: August 17, 2012

  Purpose

The cerebral oxygen saturation is assessed by means of near-infrared spectometry in parturients undergoing cesarean delivery under spinal anesthesia. The investigators hypothesis was that spinal anesthesia does not influence cerebral oxygen saturation.


Condition Intervention
Cerebral Oxygen Saturation During Spinal Anesthesia for Cesarean Delivery
Other: Spinal Anesthesia with cerebral oxygen saturation monitoring

Further study details as provided by University of Athens:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • cerebral oxygen saturation of the right frontal lobe [ Time Frame: Change from the performing of spinal anesthesia untill 1 minute after delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Cerebral oxygen saturation is important as it may affect patient's outcome


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • cerebral oxygen saturation of the left frontal lobe [ Time Frame: 5, 10, 50 min after spinal,1 minute after delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Cerebral oxygen saturation is important for patient's outcome

  • Thigh oxygen saturation [ Time Frame: 5, 10, 50 min after spinal, 1 minute after delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Thigh oxygen saturation may reflect blood redistribution due to spinal block

  • Arterial Oxygenation [ Time Frame: 5, 10, 50 min after spinal, 1 minute after delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Changes in arterial oxygenation may reflect blood redistribution due to spinal block


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Hemodynamic changes (Changes in Blood Pressure (mmHg) and Heart rate (beats/min) [ Time Frame: 5, 10, 50 min after spinal, 1 minute after delivery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Hemodynamic changes (changes in Blood Pressure and Heart rate) may reflect blood redistribution due to spinal block

Arms Assigned Interventions
Spinal Anesthesia with cerebral oxygen saturation monitoring
The cerebral oxygen saturation of the right and left frontal lobe as well as the thigh oxygen saturation are monitored during spinal anesthesia by means of the near-infrared spectroscopy. Hemodynamic variables were recorded at the same time points.
Other: Spinal Anesthesia with cerebral oxygen saturation monitoring
Other Name: INVOS (cerebral oximeter model 5100, Somanetics, Troy, MI, USA)
