In 2011, the company that produced thiopental in France and in the United States stopped its marketing. Because of limited evidences, the choice of the best induction agent for caesarean section remains controversial, especially in emergency. The objective of this study was to compare the effects of propofol versus thiopental on the Apgar score of the newborn.

As long as I have worked in obstetrics, we have been using the caesarean section rate as a measure of the quality of maternity care. Reducing the rate of unnecessary intervention has always been the r...
Caesarean section rates are increasing worldwide, and since the 2000s, several researchers have investigated women's demand for caesarean sections.
Although Caesarean section (CS) is protective for brachial plexus birth injury (BPBI), the incidence is not zero. A trial of labour with unfavourable intrauterine positioning is hypothesized to result...
Caesarean section is increasing in prevalence and with it the proportion of women going into their next pregnancy with a scar on their uterus. For women considering vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC...
The timing of repeat caesarean section after previous multiple caesarean sections has long been a balance ('the art of obstetrics') between the notion of maternal morbidity from anecdotal instances of...
The caesarean section rate is rising globally. About 10% of the newborns are submitted to a neonatal department after planned caesarean section, primarily with respiratory disorders. More ...
Sevoflurane and propofol are the most popular drug choices for maintenance of general anaesthesia for caesarean section. However, effects of these two anesthetics on maternal and fetal out...
This study is aimed at increasing the safety of the use of anaesthesia in an elderly population (> 60 years). Patients with decreased physiological reserve, including all elderly patients,...
The aim of this study is to determine whether induction of anesthesia with thiopental followed by propofol infusion is able to maintain sufficient depth of anesthesia .
Comparison of two randomized group : - caesarean section planned at 38 weeks after 2 antenatal injections of 12 mg of betamethasone 48 h before. - caesarean section plan...
Abnormal increase in RESPIRATORY RATE in the newborn. It is self-limiting and attributed to the delayed fetal lung fluid clearance often in CAESAREAN SECTION delivery.
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
A condition of the newborn marked by DYSPNEA with CYANOSIS, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, mostly frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
The event that a FETUS is born alive with heartbeats or RESPIRATION regardless of GESTATIONAL AGE. Such liveborn is called a newborn infant (INFANT, NEWBORN).
