It was common to administer glucose to the patients undergoing caesarean section either as a vehicle for oxytocin or to prevent dehydration, ketosis, and hypotension after regional block. The authors investigated thirty cases of mother undergoing caesarean section and their newborn babies to understand the relationship of glucose and electrolytes levels between mother and newborn baby. Five percent dextrose in isctated Ringer's solution was administered as a maintenance fluid. Each patient had a different rate of fluid administration. Blood samples were taken from vein on one of upper extremities of mother and unbillical vein of newborn baby at birth, and femoral vein of newborn baby two hours after birth. In nineteen cases samples from umbilical arteries were taken also. The results were as follows: 1) The levels of potassium in newborn babies were higher than those of mothers, and in newborn the levels at two hours after birth were higher than those at birth. 2) The higher the level of glucose in mother, the higher in newborn baby at birth. 3) The higher the level of glucose in newborn baby at birth, the greater the level of decrease during two hours after birth, and on the contrary the baby who had lower level of glucose showed the tendency to increase two hours after birth. 4) The difference of the level of glucose between umbilical vein and artery in newborn baby was 9.8mg/dl.
