  • RIGHT VERSUS LEFT LATERAL TILT FOR CESAREAN-SECTION BRITISH JOURNAL OF ANAESTHESIA BULEY, R. J., Downing, J. W., BROCKUTNE, J. G., CUERDEN, C. 1977; 49 (10): 1009-1015

    Abstract:

    In 60 mothers with normal placental function, the relative merits of right and left lateral tilt during Caesarean section were assessed. Maternal-foetal biochemical values and relationships were generally more satisfactory with the left lateral position. The incidence of hypotension (revealed aorto-caval occlusion) before and after induction of anaesthesia, was significantly greater (P less than 0.001) with the "right side down" posture.
