The incidence of anesthesia-induced hypotension in healthy parturients undergoing elective cesarean delivery remains high despite the availability of evidence-based prevention measures.  There are wide variations in clinical practice for preventing spinal anesthesia-induced hypotension in healthy

parturients undergoing elective cesarean delivery, many of which are based on custom rather than current best evidence.  Anesthesia providers will be able to compare and contrast evidence-based strategies for preventing spinal anesthesia-induced hypotension in parturients undergoing elective cesarean delivery.
