isobaric

 [i″so-bar´ik]
having equal or constant pressure or weight across space or time.

i·so·bar·ic

(ī'sō-bar'ik),
1. Having equal weights or pressures.
2. With respect to solutions, having the same density as the diluent or medium; for example, in spinal anesthesia, an isobaric solution has the same specific gravity as spinal fluid.

However, Kim and colleagues used hyperbaric solution, and the dynamics of heavy spinal solution spread in the CSF, compared to isobaric or plain solutions, is to flow to the most dependent point of the spinal canal, which is usually T6 when lying supine, as the spinal curves are followed, and thus the height of spinal block becomes independent of CSF volume.
