AbstractAim: To evaluate the incidence of spinal anesthesia failure necessitating conversion to general anesthesia in women presenting for caesarean section.
Methods: This research included 120 women who were scheduled for a caesarean section under regional anaesthetic, as well as women who were weighed and had their heights measured. Women scheduled for general anaesthesia, women who refused to participate, and women whose height and weight could not be obtained were all excluded from the research.
Results: We discovered that the majority of the patients (70.33%) were between the ages of 25 and 35, with the average age of the patients being 32.552.58 years. The patients' mean BMI was 29.122.33kg/m2. There were 21 elective cases (17.5%) and 99 emergency cases (82.5%). The frequency of spinal anaesthesia failure necessitating conversion to general anaesthesia. We discovered that 10% of all patients were converted to general anaesthetic owing to spinal anaesthesia failure. The outcome was statistically significant (p<0.05).
Conclusion: As a result of the failure of spinal anaesthetic during the c-section operation, we found that 10% of the patients in our research group required a change to general anaesthetic.
