Preload or coload for spinal anesthesia for elective cesarean delivery: a meta-analysis

The review found that in women who underwent elective caesarean delivery under spinal anaesthesia, the timing of fluid loading did not affect the incidence of hypotension regardless of whether colloid or crystalloid fluids were used.
