PMID:  14633562     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: We conducted a double-blinded randomized trial comparing the spread of spinal anesthesia placed with a parturient in either the right or left lateral position. There was a faster onset in the left lateral group; however, the maximum block heights and the time taken to achieve them were similar in both groups.
