Expert opinion supports that patients undergoing either elective cesarean delivery or elective postpartum tubal ligation should undergo a fasting period of 6—8 hours. This document reflects emerging clinical and scientific advances as of the date issued and is subject to change. Over the past 60 years, the incidence of maternal death publicationsandservicss of aspiration has decreased dramatically.

There is insufficient evidence to address the safety of any particular fasting period for solids in obstetric patients. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. There is insufficient evidence to draw conclusions about ofg relationship between fasting times for clear liquids and the risk of emesis or reflux or both or pulmonary aspiration during labor.
Examples of clear liquids include, but are not limited to, water, fruit juices without pulp, carbonated beverages, clear tea, black coffee, and sports drinks. Contributing to this decrease have been hospital policies and strategies to reduce maternal gastric volume and increase gastric pH and improvements in obstetric anesthesia practice.
Practice guidelines for obstetric anesthesia: The information should not be construed as dictating an exclusive course of treatment or procedure to be followed. The oral intake of modest amounts of clear liquids may be allowed for patients with uncomplicated labor.
Although there is some disagreement, most experts agree that oral intake of clear liquids during labor does not increase maternal complications.
Requests for authorization to make photocopies should be directed to: The patient without complications undergoing elective cesarean delivery may have modest amounts of clear liquids up to 2 hours before induction of anesthesia. These practice guidelines are evidence-based and developed using a rigorous process that combines scientific and consensus-based evidence.
This has led to questions about the utility of very restrictive oral intake policies in laboring patients and calls to liberalize these policies in low-risk patients.
