A prospective, randomized, double blinded study to evaluate the efficacy of intravenous dexamethasone for nausea prophylaxis prior to duramorph and bupivacaine spinal anesthesia for scheduled cesarean section

In this prospective, randomized, controlled, double-blinded clinical trial, patients who presented for scheduled (non-emergent) cesarean section were given either intravenous dexamethasone or placebo prior to receiving a duramorph containing spinal anesthetic. The incidence of nausea and vomiting and the use of rescue anti-nausea medications in both groups was then compared.
