“Investigating the Effect of Acupressure on Shivering During a Cesarean Delivery in Women Who Were Previously Laboring With an Epidural”
Shivering during a cesarean section can be quite uncomfortable for the patient as well as make it difficult for the anesthesiologist to obtain vital signs. The researchers will investigate whether or not applying pressure to the P6 acupressure point during a cesarean section can treat shivering. The hypothesis is that shivering will be alleviated with acupressure.
