Abstract

Healthy, spontaneously born infants, delivered at the calculated time shows a postnatal tachycardia combined with harrowing of oscillation. But then there is a normalisation in heart action. This phenomenon is nearly the same both in spontaneous delivery and intubation anesthesia for forceps delivery starting with propanidid. Therefore propanidid is of less risk for the neonate. But after hexobarbital anesthesia our results reveal a lingering cardial adaption of the neonate, which is statistical significant. This points to possible cardiac depressive side effects of this drug. Therefore the usage of hexobarbital anesthesia should be well considered in obstetrics.
