Figure 3: A cardiac index (cardiac output/body surface area) measured at 1 min intervals up to 60 min following initiation of epidural or combined spinal-epidural analgesia. Solid line represents the average values of the combined spinal epidural group (n = 10). Dotted line represents the average values of the E group (n = 13). No difference between the two groups at baseline. Statistical significance starts at 15 min (P = 0.006) after initiation of bolus. The difference between the two groups continues until 45 min (P = 0.0003). No difference noted from 45 min to 60 min. *P < 0.05, significant change from baseline within the same group, **P < 0.05, significant difference at specific time point between the two groups
