Carbetocin is routinely given during the caesarean section to improve the uterine contraction with the aim of reducing the blood loss. In this randomised, controlled double-blind non-inferiority trial we aim at comparing the uterine tone and the haemodynamic side effects after the administration of Carbetocin as a slow bolus injection to the administration as a short infusion. We assume that the effects on the uterus will not differ, but that especially cardiovascular side effects will not be as pronounced after a short infusion.
