The invention relates to medicine, namely to anesthesiology and intensive care, and the identification of risk groups for the development of high spinal block in pregnant women with cesarean sections.

One of the disadvantages of spinal anesthesia is hypotension, developing due to vasodilation in the area of the blockade of sympathetic ganglia (Mulroy M Local anesthesia: an Illustrated practical guide / Lane. from English. S.A. Panfilov; Ed. by Prof. S. Emelyanov. - M.: BINOM. Knowledge laboratory, 2003. - 301 C.). The occurrence of high levels of Th-1, Th-2, sympathetic blockade, when performing spinal anesthesia in obstetric practice accompanied by severe hypotonia and even collapse, which threatens the life of the pregnant woman and the fetus. Any hemodynamic changes that occur in pregnant women during spinal anesthesia, difficult to manage, and therefore, the prediction and prevention of their more promising than the subsequent correction of circulation (anesthesiology /edited by A.A. of Bunyatyan - M.: Medicine, 1997. - 656 S.).

It is known that the distribution of local anesthetic into the subarachnoid space is affected by two important anthropometric parameters: the height of the patient and intra-abdominal pressure [Mulroy M Local anesthesia: an Illustrated practical guide / M MA the swarm; Under the editorship of Prof. S. Emelyanov. - M.: BINOM. Knowledge laboratory, 2003. - 301 S.: ill.]. Based on the fact that pregnant intra-abdominal pressure is increased, and the recommended dose of local anesthetic when performing spinal anesthesia have 30% less than other patients [Shifman E.M., ' GV Spinal anesthesia in obstetrics / EM Shifman, GV Philipovich. - Petrozavodsk: Inteltek, 2005. - 558 C.]. However, the level of intra-abdominal pressure for each individual pregnant and depends on its Constitution, the fruit weight, the quantity of amniotic fluid, compliance decreased abdominal wall. In obstetric anesthesia when performing spinal anesthesia to date does not take into account the level of intra-abdominal pressure in each individual pregnant woman, and only considers the growth of the patient.

As a prototype, the author offers described in the literature as a method for predicting the development of high spinal block, depending on the growth of the patient [Shifman E.M., ' GV Spinal anesthesia in obstetrics / EM Shifman, GV Philipovich. - Petrozavodsk: Inteltek, 2005. - 558]. Local anesthetic solution, introduced into the subarachnoid space for women of small stature, covers more cranially, and therefore causes a higher block than the introduction of the same dose of the drug to patients you who will be about the growth.

Larger subarachnoid space, and, consequently, a larger volume of CSF in patients with high growth, will lead to greater dilution of a solution of local anesthetic and as a consequence - to the lower level unit. Forecasting the level of spinal block only for the growth of a pregnant has the following disadvantages:

1. On the volume of the subarachnoid space in addition to growth pregnant is greatly influenced by intra-abdominal pressure. With increasing intra-abdominal pressure is increased blood flow in the veins of the epidural space at the same time they increase in size and squeeze outside the subarachnoid space.

2. The level of intra-abdominal pressure in pregnant women may be varied within wide limits: from normal is 5-10 cm H2O, to extremely high - 28-30 cm H2O and depends on the period of gestation, foetal weight, the quantity of amniotic fluid, the volume of the abdominal cavity and other constitutional factors.

3. In women of the same height may be different intra-abdominal pressure, and therefore a different amount of subarachnoid space. Therefore, when the same dose of local anesthetic will receive a different level of spinal block.

The authors propose a way of forecasting the development of high spinal block in pregnant women with cesarean sections In the basis of the method is a comprehensive evaluation of three parameters: the growth of the patient, the body mass index (BMI) and abdominal pressure measured immediately before anaesthesia. Based on these parameters, the authors have developed an integrated risk scale high spinal block (see table 1).

The essence of the method consists in the following:

1. Stage. Determination of intra-abdominal pressure.

In the operating room before spinal anesthesia, pregnant, lying horizontally, is mounted in the bladder Foley catheter and released were in the urine. Then through the catheter into the bladder is entered 80 ml of 0.9% solution of sodium chloride. While the walls of the bladder begin to function as a passive membrane and serve as a guide intra-abdominal pressure, which allows to measure intra-abdominal pressure via a urinary catheter. Then the catheter of Follea connect with an empty system for intravenous infusion, which is raised vertically above the bosom of the patient (figure 1). Zero point is the level of the pubic symphysis. From this level with a ruler to determine the height of the vertical standing of the physiological solution in the system for intravenous infusion. This value corresponds to the level of intra-abdominal pressure (cm H2O).

2. Stage. The calculation of the risk of development of high spinal block

On the basis of the total estimate three parameters: intra-abdominal D. the effect, growth and body mass index scores are calculated (table 1). For the total number of points determines the risk of developing high spinal block.

Risk low: 3-6 points,

Risk moderate: 7-9 points

Risk: 10-12 points

The risk is extremely high: more than 13 points.

The advantages of the proposed method of identification of risk groups for the development of high spinal blockade in pregnant women during cesarean section in relation to the prototype are:

1. This method allows the complex to take into account the main factors (height, body mass index, intra-abdominal pressure)that affect the volume of the subarachnoid space.

2. This method of forecasting the development of high spinal block applies to all pregnant women, because it is based on the evaluation of three simple parameters: height, BMI and magnitude of intra-abdominal pressure.

3. It does not require complex medical equipment. Enough is installed into the bladder before the operation of the Foley catheter, intravenous infusion, 100 ml of 0.9% solution of sodium chloride and ruler.

The technical result of the proposed method is to identify cesarean sections among pregnant women at-risk groups for the development of high spinal block, which allows you to adjust the dose of local anesthetic and to prepare the necessary standards is by the prevention of complications related high spinal block.

This method of identification of risk groups for the development of high spinal blockade in pregnant women with cesarean sections used in 124 women. The age of patients ranged from 19 to 40 years.

That is ensured by general anaesthesia in a combination with deep and superficial cervical plexus blockade. Pre-medication is used the day before the operation and on the operative day in the morning. Diazepam is introduced intramuscularly 30 minutes before the operation in a combination with phentanyl; the introduction is followed by ECG monitoring and heart rate count, plethysmography with arterial blood saturation, non-invasive blood pressure measurement and neuromonitring according to a bispectral index or entropy. Catheterisation of patient's peripheral or central vein is followed by an infusion therapy, an ionotropic therapy, a cardiotropic therapy, peripheral resistance maintenance. If heart rate is no more than 80 beats per minute, the anaesthesia is induced to reach an anaesthetic depth according to the bispectral index or entropy within 40-60 units. Analgesia is provided by the intravenous introduction of 0.005% phentanyl; myoplegia is ensured by the intravenous introduction of a myorelaxant. After tracheal intubation, the patient is transferred to forced volumentic artificial pulmonary ventilation with the CO2 level within 35-45 mm Hg according to capnography. The anaesthesia is maintained by supplying an inhalation anaesthetic to the steam level of 0.8-1.0 MAK 0.8-0.9 litre of the air and oxygen flow containing 50% oxygen with controlling the inhalation anaesthetic volume by the level of the anaesthetic depth according to the bispectral index or entropy. That is followed by deep cervical plexus blockade. A tubercle of the VI cervical vertebra (a carotid tubercle) and a mastoid process are localised; thereafter a line connecting the above reference points is drawn on skin. The second line is drawn 1 cm below the first one in parallel. To verify an injection point of a local anaesthetic, the spines of IV, III, II cervical vertebras being at 1.5 cm from each other are palpated, and the reference point is the VI cervical vertebra. The needle is inserted perpendicularly to the skin and slightly in the caudal direction to reach the spines. The anaesthetic is introduced in a dose of 5-7 ml in each point C4, C3, C2. Another 5-7 ml of the anaesthetic is introduced in a point found in an apex of the mastoid process. The superficial cervical plexus blockade requires introducing he fan-shaped introduction of the anaesthetic solution in a dose of 15 ml in a point found in the middle of a lateral crus of the nodding muscle under the above muscle, 4-5 ml in each direction from the same point; the first and following injections are performed at a depth of a usual intramuscular needle perpendicularly to nodding muscle.

EFFECT: method provides the adequate and safe anaesthesia ensured by avoiding linear blood velocity reduction in the medial cerebral artery during the surgical intervention, preventing intracranial pressure increase, reducing cerebral perfusion pressure in a combination with providing adequate protection against surgical invasion with maintaining stroke volume and arterial pressure.

SUBSTANCE: for determining propensity for oncological diseases, dermatoglyphic pattern parameters are determined. There are determined a whorl type and a ridge estimate on phalanxes; a ridge estimate ab, bc, cd on palms; an angle atd, a termination direction of main palmar lines A, B, C and D into the palmar fields; arrangement of palmar and axial triradius; patterns in a ball of thumb, a hypothenar eminence and in interdigital fields. The derived parameters are used to diagnose genetic propensity for lung, stomach or breast cancer. A probability of developing oncological diseases is higher in the presence of such non-genetic factors, as ecological contamination of a place of residence and a working area, the presence of cancer in first-degree relatives, social habits - smoking and alcohol, and with the age. A degree of a risk of lung cancer also increases in males having chronic, non-specific pulmonary diseases, tuberculosis in past history. A degree of a risk of stomach cancer also increases in males having chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer in past history, consuming spicy and greasy food. A probability of breast cancer is higher in the presence of gynaecological diseases in past history, in increased number of induced and natural abortions, increased number of pregnancies and decreased number of deliveries, later onset of mensis and earlier onset of menopause.
