JM Afolayan, BA Olofinbiyi, OM Ipinnimo

Abstract


The use of sub-arachnoid block in a restless eclamptic is not very common. Studies have demonstrated some benefits of sub-arachnoid block over  general anaesthesia in stable eclamptic but its role in the management of unstable eclampsia has not been established. Reported below is an eclamptic parturient who was restless despite magnesium sulphate regimen and  possesed features suggestive of difficult airway who had uneventful  subarachnoid- block for caesarean section.
