What position will reduce hypotension after spinal anesthesia?
Select Your Answer:
1. Jackknife position
2. Trendelenburg position
3. Reverse Trendelenburg position
The lithotomy position will reduce hypotension after spinal anesthesia.
The lithotomy position often is used to examine the pelvis. The lithotomy position offers good access to the perineal region.
However, lithotomy position also has been associated with compartment syndrome, like increased tissue, pressure when the procedure is prolonged.
Patients complain of loss of control and a sense of vulnerability in the lithotomy position.
