Hello all,

I recently completed my ob specialty rotation. Currently, the literature states that the use of phenylephrine is appropriate for the treatment of hypotension due to neuroaxial blockade in the healthy paturient. However, a few CRNAs I have worked with gave me a harsh lesson when I was about to administer Phenylephrine to the patient (note: the patient's bp did not improve after the crna premptively bolused an entire stick of ephedrine following SAB).
As an SRNA, we are taught to practice evidenced-based. What's your vasopressor of choice? Any thoughts about vasopressor use in OB anesthesia would be appreciated.

Thank you!
