Do you have to wear support stockings after an emergency c-section?

Do you have to wear support stockings after an emergency c-section?

No: After a csection, the best way to prevent dangerous blood clots is to get up and move. During the csection we use devices on the legs to reduce clots that can be continued until the mom is moving. Generally we want our patients out of bed by the following morning. ...Read more

Y cant you eat before a c-section? Y do people vomit during c-section?Can you have maxalon for a c-section?What if you eat before emergency c-section?

Too dangerous: The risk of vomiting is high during csection. if a woman vomits, she risks aspiration which can be fatal. Women vomit for lots of reasons, anesthetic causes a drop in blood pressure, the uterus is being manipulated and there is abdominal pressure as well as other reasons. Maxalon is often given prophylactically before csection. If it's an emergency it's an emergency and we just accept the risk. ...Read more

Is it possible to have emergency C-section without anesthesia?

Is it possible to have emergency C-section without anesthesia?

Difficult: It's possible but realistically there is always local anesthesia available along with other meds which can be given quickly to help in an emergency. Truly emergent c-sections have been done with nothing (bad idea...), with IV meds (ketamine, versed, etc), or local injection (lidocaine, marcaine...Doesn't really work well either). If anesthesia isn't available (rare) it is possible but painful. ...Read more

In case of an emergency c section, do I have the right to choose my anesthesia?

In case of an emergency c section, do I have the right to choose my anesthesia?

Great question: It depends on the true nature of the emergency. If you already have an epidural in place that is working well it can often be used during an emergency. However when time is of the essence, and the baby or mom are at risk, general anesthesia is the fastest way to get a distressed baby out and cared for. Please rely on the expertise of your obstetrician and anesthesiologist to make the best choice. ...Read more
