Babies delivered from mothers who had 60% oxygen administered during general anaesthesia at elective Caesarean section, had higher pH and lower pCO2 levels, and were clinically in better condition than babies delivered after a similar induction-delivery interval when a concentration of 30 - 33% oxygen was given to the mother.
