From: A comparative study between dexmedetomidine and dexamethasone as an intrathecal adjuvant for prevention of perioperative shivering in cesarean section

  Group A (n = 30) Group B (n = 30) p value
Incidence of shivering (No. of patients) 5/30 7/30 0.119
Grade of shivering (0/1/2/3/4) (No. of patients) 25/2/3/0/0 23/2/3/2/0 0.119
Sedation grade (0/1/2/3/4) (No. of patients) 0/15/13/2/0 24/6/0/0/0 < 0.001
