As we have not measured the specific gravity of the drug in our study, taking into consideration the fact that bupivacaine and ropivacaine are hypobaric at 37[degrees]C, (31) it can be assumed that the hypobaric nature of our drug, sitting position (32,33) and comparatively faster rate of injection (29) has resulted in quicker onset of motor blockade.
Humans living at high altitudes are exposed to hypobaric hypoxia, a condition where reduced pressure decreases oxygen availability resulting in reduced oxygen levels [1, 2].
