070 – Shivering under neuraxial block

Hi Everyone,

This week I sit down again with Graeme. We discuss WA’s isolation & covid bubble, exchange a few crap jokes and have a go at the thorny topic of shivering under neuraxial anaesthesia.

Big thanks to everyone who helped with the OSCAR trial all those years ago, Yelena for teaching me a new trick to stop shivering and to Dr Tim Pavy for giving me two weeks leave to write up my thesis on shivering!


The OSCAR trial – prophylactic ondansetron does not prevent or decrease the severity of shivering under spinal for Caesarean.
