Maternal intrapartum temperature elevation as a risk factor for cesarean delivery and assisted vaginal delivery. (1/280)

OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the association of intrapartum temperature elevation with cesarean delivery and assisted vaginal delivery. METHODS: Participants were 1233 nulliparous women with singleton, term pregnancies in vertex presentations who had spontaneous labors and were afebrile (temperature: 99.5 degrees F [37.5 degrees C]) at admission for delivery. Rates of cesarean and assisted vaginal deliveries according to highest intrapartum temperature were examined by epidural status. RESULTS: Women with maximum intrapartum temperatures higher than 99.5 degrees F were 3 times as likely to experience cesarean (25.2% vs 7.2%) or assisted vaginal delivery (25.2% vs 8.5%). The association was present in epidural users and nonusers and persisted after birthweight, epidural use, and labor length had been controlled. In adjusted analyses, temperature elevation was associated with a doubling in the risk of cesarean delivery (odds ratio [OR] = 2.3, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.5, 3.4) and assisted vaginal delivery (OR = 2.1, 95% CI = 1.4, 3.1). CONCLUSIONS: Modest temperature elevation developing during labor was associated with higher rates of cesarean and assisted vaginal deliveries. More frequent temperature elevation among women with epidural analgesia may explain in part the higher rates of cesarean and assisted vaginal deliveries observed with epidural use.  (+info)

Neonatal outcome and mode of delivery after epidural analgesia for labour with ropivacaine and bupivacaine: a prospective meta-analysis. (2/280)

In this prospective meta-analysis, we have evaluated the effect of epidural analgesia with ropivacaine for pain in labour on neonatal outcome and mode of delivery compared with bupivacaine. In six randomized, double-blind studies, 403 labouring women, primigravidae and multiparae, received epidural analgesia with ropivacaine or bupivacaine 2.5 mg ml-1. The drugs were administered as intermittent boluses in four studies and by continuous infusion in two. Apgar scores, neurological and adaptive capacity scores (NACS), degree of motor block and mode of delivery were recorded. The studies were designed prospectively to fit meta-analysis of the pooled results. Results showed similar pain relief and consumption of the two drugs. In the vaginally delivered neonates, NACS scores were approximately equal for both groups at 2 h, but at 24 h there were fewer infants with NACS less than 35 in the ropivacaine compared with the bupivacaine group (2.8% vs 7.6%; P < 0.05). Spontaneous vaginal deliveries occurred more frequently overall with ropivacaine than with bupivacaine (58% vs 49%; P < 0.05) and instrumental deliveries (forceps and vacuum extraction) less frequently (27% vs 40%; P < 0.01), while the frequency of Caesarean section was similar between groups. The intensity of motor block was lower with ropivacaine. There were no significant differences in adverse events.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: The minimum local analgesic concentration (MLAC) has been defined as the median effective local analgesic concentration in a 20-ml volume for epidural analgesia in the first stage of labor. The aim of this study was to assess the relative analgesic potencies of epidural bupivacaine and ropivacaine by determining their respective minimum local analgesic concentrations. METHODS: Seventy-three parturients at < or = 7 cm cervical dilation who requested epidural analgesia were allocated to one of two groups in this double-blinded, randomized, prospective study. After a lumbar epidural catheter was placed, 20 ml of the test solution was given, either ropivacaine (n = 34) or bupivacaine (n = 39). The concentration of local anesthetic was determined by the response of the previous patient in that group to a higher or lower concentration using up-down sequential allocation. Analgesic efficacy was assessed using 100-mm visual analog pain scores with < or = 10 mm within 30 min defined as effective. An effective result directed a 0.01% wt/vol decrement for the next patient. An ineffective result directed a 0.01% wt/vol increment. RESULTS: The minimum local analgesic concentration of ropivacaine was 0.111% wt/vol (95% confidence interval, 0.100-0.122), and the minimum local analgesic concentration of bupivacaine was 0.067% wt/vol (95% confidence interval, 0.052-0.082). Ropivacaine was significantly less potent than bupivacaine, with a potency ratio of 0.6 (95% confidence interval, 0.49-0.74). No difference in motor effects was observed. CONCLUSION: Ropivacaine was significantly less potent than bupivacaine for epidural analgesia in the first stage of labor.  (+info)

Lumbar sympathetic blocks speed early and second stage induced labor in nulliparous women. (4/280)

BACKGROUND: Rapid cervical dilation reportedly accompanies lumbar sympathetic blockade, whereas epidural analgesia is associated with slow labor. The authors compared the effects of initial lumbar sympathetic block with those of epidural analgesia on labor speed and delivery mode in this pilot study. METHODS: At a hospital not practicing active labor management, full-term nulliparous patients whose labors were induced randomly received initial lumbar sympathetic block or epidural analgesia. The latter patients received 10 ml bupivacaine, 0.125%; 50 microg fentanyl; and 100 microg epinephrine epidurally and sham lumbar sympathetic blocks. Patients to have lumbar sympathetic blocks received 10 ml bupivacaine, 0.5%; 25 microg fentanyl; and 50 microg epinephrine bilaterally and epidural catheters. Subsequently, all patients received epidural analgesia. RESULTS: Cervical dilation occurred more quickly (57 vs. 120 min/cm cervical dilation; P = 0.05) during the first 2 h of analgesia in patients having lumbar sympathetic blocks (n = 17) than in patients having epidurals (n = 19). The second stage of labor was briefer in patients having lumbar sympathetic blocks than in those having epidurals (105 vs. 270 min; P < 0.05). Nine patients having lumbar sympathetic block and seven having epidurals delivered spontaneously, whereas seven patients having lumbar sympathetic block and seven having epidurals had instrument-assisted vaginal deliveries. Cesarean delivery for fetal bradycardia occurred in one patient having lumbar sympathetic block. Cesarean delivery for dystocia occurred in five patients having epidurals compared with no patient having lumbar sympathetic block (P = not significant). Visual analog pain scores differed only at 60 min after block. CONCLUSIONS: Nulliparous parturients having induced labor and receiving initial lumbar sympathetic blocks had faster cervical dilation during the first 2 h of analgesia, shorter second-stage labors, and a trend toward a lower dystocia cesarean delivery rate than did patients having epidural analgesia. The effects of lumbar sympathetic block on labor need to be determined in other patient groups. These results may help define the tocodynamic effects of regional labor analgesia.  (+info)

Epidural pain relief in labour: potencies of levobupivacaine and racemic bupivacaine. (5/280)

We have compared the minimum local analgesic concentrations (MLAC) of levobupivacaine relative to racemic bupivacaine in a prospective, randomized, double-blind, sequential allocation study. Women in labour were given a 20-ml bolus of epidural levobupivacaine or bupivacaine diluted to a concentration determined by up-down sequential allocation. The initial concentration was 0.07% w/v for both drugs. Efficacy was defined using a visual analogue pain score (VAPS) at 10 mm or less within 30 min. The MLAC of levobupivacaine was 0.083% w/v (95% CI 0.065-0.101) and the MLAC of bupivacaine 0.081% w/v (95% CI 0.055-0.108). In molar terms, the MLAC of levobupivacaine was 2.87 mmol litre-1 (95% CI 2.25-3.49) and the MLAC of bupivacaine 2.49 mmol litre-1 (95% CI 1.69-3.32). With regard to the commercial preparations, the potency ratio levobupivacaine: bupivacaine was 0.98 (95% CI 0.67-1.41), and this is unlikely to be of clinical relevance. In molar terms, the ratio was 0.87 (95% CI 0.60-1.25). With regard to toxicity, the evidence should be evaluated in the light of a possible 13% potency difference in molar concentration in favour of racemic bupivacaine.  (+info)

Epidural analgesia during labor and maternal fever. (6/280)

BACKGROUND: In recent observational studies, epidural analgesia during labor at patient request has been associated with maternal fever. The authors report a secondary analysis of fever in women who were randomized to receive either epidural or patient-controlled intravenous analgesia during labor. METHODS: Maternal tympanic temperature was measured during spontaneous labor in 715 women at term who were randomized to either epidural analgesia with bupivacaine and fentanyl or to patient-controlled intravenous analgesia with meperidine. Intent-to-treat analysis of women with fever (temperature > or = 38.0 degrees C) versus those without was performed using Student t test and Fisher exact test to determine statistical significance (P < 0.05). RESULTS: Epidural analgesia was associated with maternal fever (odds ratio = 4.0; 95% confidence interval = 2.0-7.7), as was nulliparity (odds ratio = 4.1; 95% confidence interval = 1.8-9.1) and labor longer than 12 h (odds ratio = 5.4; 95% confidence interval = 2.9-9.9). These factors were all independent variables for maternal fever when analyzed using logistic regression. CONCLUSIONS: Epidural analgesia is associated with maternal fever. However, nulliparity and dysfunctional labor are also significant cofactors in the fever attributed to epidural analgesia.  (+info)

Epidural analgesia in an obstetric patient with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. (7/280)

We describe the use of epidural analgesia for vaginal delivery of a parturient with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome in whom the use of repeated magnetic resonance imaging during her obstetric care allowed us to see deep haemangiomata. This also allowed the safe sitting of an epidural catheter at L1-2 to provide analgesia for labour and delivery. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome and the anaesthetic implications of the congenital vascular abnormalities and potential coagulopathy are discussed.  (+info)

Shivering and shivering-like tremor during labor with and without epidural analgesia. (8/280)

BACKGROUND: Effective treatment and prevention of hyperthermia and shivering-like tremor during labor is hindered by a poor understanding of their causes. The authors sought to identify the incidence of nonthermoregulatory shivering-like tremor and the factors associated with this activity. METHODS: The authors studied women in spontaneous full-term labor who chose epidural analgesia (n = 21) or opioid sedation (n = 31). Shivering-like tremor and sweating were evaluated by observation. Core temperature was recorded in the external auditory canal using a compensated infrared thermometer. Arteriovenous shunt tone was evaluated with forearm minus fingertip skin temperature gradients; gradients less than 0 were considered evidence of vasodilation. Tremor was considered nonthermoregulatory when core temperature exceeded 37 degrees C and the arms were vasodilated. Pain was evaluated using a visual analog scale. RESULTS: Shivering-like tremor was observed in 18% of 290, 30-min data-acquisition epochs before delivery. The patients were both normothermic and vasodilated during 15% of these epochs. Shivering was observed in 16% of 116 postdelivery epochs and was nonthermoregulatory in 28%. Sweating was observed in 30% of predelivery epochs, and the patients were both hypothermic and vasoconstricted during 12%. The mean core temperature in patients given epidural analgesia was approximately 0.2 degrees C greater than in those given sedation. Hyperthermia was observed during 10 epochs (38.4+/-0.3 degrees C) during epidural analgesia and during 10 epochs (38.4+/-0.3 degrees C) with sedation. The patients were vasoconstricted in more than 50% of these epochs in each group. Multivariate mixed-effects modeling identified high pain scores and vasoconstriction as significant predictors of shivering. There were no predictors for shivering epochs in patients who were simultaneously normothermic and vasodilated. Significant predictors of sweating were time before delivery, high pain scores, hypothermia with vasoconstriction, high thermal comfort, and low mean skin temperature. There were no predictors for sweating epochs in patients who were simultaneously hypothermic and vasoconstricted. CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms the clinical impression that some peripartum shivering-like tremor is nonthermoregulatory. The authors also identified nonthermoregulatory sweating. These data indicate that shivering-like tremor and sweating in the peripartum period is multifactorial.  (+info)

Its variants are epidural analgesia and combined spinal-epidural analgesia. Few studies, as yet, have investigated the duration of labor as a primary outcome. Some authors have suggested that combined spinal-epidural analgesia may reduce labor duration but at the moment the benefit of shortening labor is uncertain. The main aim of this study was to compare combined spinal-epidural with epidural analgesia in terms of their effect on ...
Fifteen days later, the patient was treated for a back skin abscess with surgical incision and oral antibiotics in view of the increase of the tumefaction. The results of bacteriologic investigations were negative. The patient did not experience any pain or fever. The results of clinical and neurologic examinations were unremarkable. Biologic samples were within the reference ranges, except for the inflammation test result. Two months after her delivery, the patient was referred to the hospital because the wound had still not healed, despite her good health. Magnetic resonance imaging (fig. 1) and computed tomography were performed and revealed a displacement of the nerve roots by an expansive mass in the posterior extradural space, which took up more than 50% of the spinal canal. This mass began at the L2-L3 level with an L2 neural arch lysis and continued down to L4-L5. Inflammatory infiltrate extended in both psoas and sacroiliac joints. Soft tissues were involved with collections in both ...

Epidural analgesia has been used to provide labor pain relief for more than 40 years, with modern techniques providing better pain control with fewer side effects. Since the early 1990s, the CSE technique has become popular because it provides more rapid pain relief with less leg weakness-the main side effect of epidural analgesia.. Despite previous studies, the relative advantages of these options for labor analgesia have been unclear. The new study is the first to directly compare epidural versus CSE for labor analgesia in a busy private maternity hospital.. The results suggest that CSE provides significantly faster and better pain relief during the first stage of labor, compared to the traditional epidural technique. The differences in pain control during early labor are small but significant, Dr Gambling and colleagues note. They write, [W]hen one considers the fact that fewer top-up doses were required to achieve the improvement in analgesia, it would seem that on balance CSE is the ...

Effect of Epidural Analgesia on Some Maternal and Fetal Parameters in Pre-Eclampsia. M.Yousri Amin, A.Salam, M.Metwally : Alexandria University , EGYPT. continuous Epidural Analgesia (EA) during labor of pre-eclamptic (P-E) patients has been recommended by several authors. Belief in improved renal function via relief of renal vasospasm, control of blood pressure, excellent analgesia and less infant depression form the basis of such recommendation.In opposition, many clinician consider conduction analgesia to be not recommended in P-E because of deceased blood volume might make them more vulnerable to hypotension.In this study we investigated the effect of continuous EA on maternal hemodynamics, renal function, and acid base balance in P-E , also, its effect on fetal heart rate(FHR) during labor.Patients and methods:Twenty P-E parturient were prepared for labor induction. Central venous catheter was placed via subclavian, lumbar epidural catheter was placed. 10 ml of 0.5% bupivacaine were ...
Part of the inconsistency with motor blockade results between studies is due to the fact that the qualitative Bromage score is not ideal for assessing motor blockade in laboring patients. Graham and McClure [19] demonstrate that laboring patients with epidural analgesia may have a quantitative decrease in adductor strength despite having a Bromage score of 0. Motor blockade due to epidural labor analgesia is thought to impair a womens ability to push in stage 2. While we did not see a significant difference in Bromage scores between groups, the obstetric providers felt that 8 patients in the PIEB group 10q60 had motor blockade as demonstrated by the inability to effectively push in stage 2. This finding demonstrates that Bromage scores may not be ideal for assessing motor blockade in laboring patients. All patients with a perceived motor block and an inability to effectively push during the second stage successfully delivered vaginally after the epidural pump was turned off. One of these ...
|i|Background|/i|. If conversion of labor epidural analgesia to cesarean delivery anesthesia fails, the anesthesiologist can be confronted with a challenging clinical dilemma. Optimal management of a failed epidural top up continues to be debated in the absence of best practice guidelines. |i|Method|/i|. All members of the Obstetric Anaesthetists’ Association in the United Kingdom were emailed an online survey in May 2017. It obtained information on factors influencing the decision to utilize an existing labor epidural for cesarean section and, if epidural top up resulted in no objective sensory block, bilateral T10 sensory block, or unilateral T6 sensory block, factors influencing the management and selection of anesthetic technique. Differences in management options between respondents were compared using the chi-squared test. |i|Results|/i|. We received 710 survey questionnaires with an overall response rate of 41%. Most respondents (89%) would consider topping up an existing

Objective: Patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) and intermittent epidural dosing are widely accepted methods for labor analgesia. The outcomes of duration of labor, Cesarean section, and instrumented deliveries of PCEA compared to intermittent epidural dosing are uncertain. We have performed a meta-analysis to further examine this issue. Method: This project is exempt from the Johns Hopkins IRB. A systematic literature search of the National Library of Medicine s PubMed database was conducted for terms related to PCEA for labor analgesia (epidural or extradural, patient-controlled or PCEA or patient controlled, labor or labour or pregnant or pregnancy or parturient). Only randomized controlled trials in the English language comparing PCEA to intermittent epidural dosing for labor analgesia were included for analysis. Data on pertinent study characteristics and relevant outcomes were extracted from accepted articles. Meta-analysis was performed using the Review Manager 4.2.10 (The ...
Six RCTs with a total of 458 patients were included in the review. Five RCTs were included in the meta-analyses (n=355 with adequate data). In terms of study quality, 4 studies reported prior power analysis, two reported adequate allocation concealment, five were at least double-blinded and three used intention-to-treat analysis. One study reported no exclusions from analysis; rates of exclusion from analysis in the other 5 studies ranged from 17 to 23.6%.. Acute pain at rest at 24 hours post-surgery (5 studies).. There was no significant difference between interventions in acute pain at rest at 24 hours (WMD -0.27, 95% CI: -0.91, 0.37; favours preemptive TEA). A sixth study, which could not be pooled, also showed no significant difference between the groups. Statistically significant heterogeneity between the studies was detected (I-squared 98.6%). The results of the analysis were not changed by the exclusion of a study in which no opioid was used.. Acute pain at rest at 48 hours post-surgery ...

Numerous study designs, including randomized controlled trials (RCTs), before-and-after studies, and observational studies with concurrent controls (analyzed by propensity scores), have asked whether labor epidural analgesia (LEA) influences the probability of Cesarean section (C/S). One limitation of the RCTs is the high rate of crossovers in many of these studies. In contrast to our previous analysis, a recent RCT meta-analysis using instrumental variables to adjust for crossovers [1] concluded that LEA increased the probability of C/S. To further investigate this topic, we updated a previous analysis based on the paired availability design (PAD), a meta-analysis of before-and-after studies adjusted for different availabilities of treatment [3]. The revised PAD (with 1 additional study and modified data extractions) yielded similar results as before, namely no effect of epidural analgesia on the probability of C/S (Figure 1). We also updated our previous meta-analysis of randomized trials ...
Epidural analgesia involves an injection into the lower back that pierces the outer coverings (epi-dura) of the spinal cord. Drugs are injected close to the nerves as they come out from the spinal cord. Usually this involves a local anaesthetic (LA) drug such as bupivacaine, along with an opiate drug (related to morphine, pethidine/meperidine etc) such as Fentanyl. Epidurals are used in many types of surgery and procedures, and also sometimes administered to receive pain outside of childbirth.. How do epidurals work?. Just like a dental anaesthetic, LA drugs block the sensory nerves, causing numbness, and also inevitably block the motor nerves, giving some degree of paralysis. Opiate drugs are added to an epidural to increase the effectiveness of the LA, so that there will be good pain relief with less motor block.. What are the benefits of epidurals?. Obviously, the main benefit of an epidural is the very effective pain relief that most women experience. Because of this effective ...

In general, your choice of where you deliver will be linked to your care provider. The majority of physicians take care of women in a hospital setting, where most birth in the US take place. Midwives also take care of women in a hospital setting, although they also deliver babies in birthing center.. Hospital birth. There are three potential advantages to choosing deliver in a hospital. First, if you are among the 30-40 percent of women over 35 who require a cesarean delivery, there will be no need for you to be moved from home or the birthing center. Although most cesarean deliveries are not urgent, in which case the delay will not cause you or your baby any harm, in an obstetric emergencies, time can be of the essence. The second advantage is that you will have more pain control options. Although many first time mothers wish to avoid epidural analgesia, you may not know what type of pain relief you want until you are actually in labor. If you are highly motivate to avoid an epidural analgesia, ...

Of the approximately 8 million Americans who suffer from ischemic peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD), many present with intermittent claudication, or pain associated with exercise. Impaired vasodilation of resistance vessels is a potential explanation for this symptom. Occluded arteries can lead to increased flow through collateral vessels, which function as natural bypasses around the obstruction. This increase in blood flow and resulting shear stress can cause outward remodeling, or arteriogenesis, which improves the efficacy of collaterals. However, following femoral artery ligation in a mouse model of chronic ischemia, vasodilation in the stem region of collateral vessels is impaired at day 7. In the outwardly remodeled collateral stem, the vessel diameter increase is not associated with cell proliferation, suggesting the functionality of the present smooth muscle cells (SMCs) may account for the impaired vasodilation. A potential mechanism for increased vessel diameter in the collateral

The effect of continuous epidural analgesia on cesarean section for dystocia in nulliparous women. Am J Obstet Gynecol. 1989 Sep;161(3):670-5.
Advances in the field of labour analgesia have tread a long journey from the days of ether and chloroform in 1847 to the present day practice of comprehensive programme of labour pain management using evidence-based medicine. Newer advances include introduction of newer techniques like combined spinal epidurals, low-dose epidurals facilitating ambulation, pharmacological advances like introduction of remifentanil for patient-controlled intravenous analgesia, introduction of newer local anaesthetics and adjuvants like ropivacaine, levobupivacaine, sufentanil, clonidine and neostigmine, use of inhalational agents like sevoflourane for patient-controlled inhalational analgesia using special vaporizers, all have revolutionized the practice of pain management in labouring parturients. Technological advances like use of ultrasound to localize epidural space in difficult cases minimizes failed epidurals and introduction of novel drug delivery modalities like patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) ...
Cervical dilation (or cervical dilatation) is the opening of the cervix, the entrance to the uterus, during childbirth, miscarriage, induced abortion, or gynecological surgery. Cervical dilation may occur naturally, or may be induced by surgical or medical means. In the later stages of pregnancy, the cervix may already have opened up to 1-3 cm (or more in rarer circumstances), but during labor, repeated uterine contractions lead to further widening of the cervix to about 6 centimeters. From that point, pressure from the presenting part (head in vertex births or bottom in breech births), along with uterine contractions, will dilate the cervix to 10 centimeters, which is complete. Cervical dilation is accompanied by effacement, the thinning of the cervix. General guidelines for cervical dilation: Latent phase: 0-3 centimeters Active Labor: 4-7 centimeters Transition: 8-10 centimeters Complete: 10 centimeters. Delivery of the infant takes place shortly after this stage is reached (although the ...
Eisenmenger syndrome belongs to the 0.4-4.1% (incidence) rarely encountered congenital cardiac lesions in pregnancy. Management of a pregnant patient with Eisenmenger syndrome is a challenging task for the anesthesiologist. Here, we report the successful outcome with the use of low-dose sequential combined spinal-epidural (CSE) anesthesia in a patient with Eisenmenger syndrome posted for cesarean section. Low-dose sequential CSE anesthesia was adequate for the performance of cesarean section with minimal hemodynamic changes and good fetal outcome. Low-dose sequential CSE can be a safe alternative to achieve good anesthesia with hemodynamic stability in such case.

This article undertakes a systemic review of the evidence of benefit or harm of continuous epidural analgesia (CEA) vs other analgesic interventions from RCTs in patients with traumatic rib fractures as of July 2014. It uses the guidelines recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration . Overall it included six trials including 223 patients, and determined that in these studies there was currently no evidence of statistical difference in outcomes of mortality, duration of mechanical ventilation or pneumonia between CEA and other analgesic interventions. It pointed out that the included trials showed a potential for a high risk of bias. The analysis showed that the amount of information currently available to accurately determine whether there is a clinical benefit or harm with the use of continuous epidural analgesia vs other analgesic techniques (such as systemic opioids, paravertebral block etc) is inadequate and that a good quality large RCT is required in this patient population to provide ...

Clinical parameters were obtained from a retrospective review of a prospective clinical database, the American College of Surgeons NSQIP prospective institutional database, and medical record review. Chi-square, Fishers exact test, and independent-samples t-tests were used for univariable analyses. Multivariable regression was performed. Results: ...

Accumulating evidence indicated that neuraxial analgesia in the latent phase of the first stage of labor would be an effective and safe health care procedure for nulliparas. Doulas, women with labor experience trained for parturients, is a new way to alleviate the psychological stress from the laboring pain. Previous data in our study showed that doula accompany is a good method in shortening the progress of labor used in the active phrase of the first stage of labor, and decreasing the rate of cesarean delivery. Investigators hypothesized that doula combined neuraxial (epidural) analgesia in the latent phrase would be a superior means for effective pain relief, decreased rate of cesarean section, and shortened duration of labor ...

Occasionally painkillers may be given by infusion into the space just outside the membranes surrounding the spinal cord. This is known as epidural analgesia. Sometimes the painkiller is given into the fluid around the spinal cord -- this is known as intrathecal analgesia. These specialised techniques are usually used only to control severe pain and are managed by anaesthetists.. If you need to have your painkillers by injection or infusion, your doctor or nurse will discuss this with you.. Please see our leaflet on Strong Painkillers for more information.. ...
We included 38 studies involving 9658 women; all but five studies compared epidural analgesia with opiates. Epidural analgesia was found to offer better pain relief (mean difference (MD) -3.36, 95% confidence interval (CI) -5.41 to -1.31, three trials, 1166 women); a reduction in the need for additional pain relief (risk ratio (RR) 0.05, 95% CI 0.02 to 0.17, 15 trials, 6019 women); a reduced risk of acidosis (RR 0.80, 95% CI 0.68 to 0.94, seven trials, 3643 women); and a reduced risk of naloxone administration (RR 0.15, 95% CI 0.10 to 0.23, 10 trials, 2645 women). However, epidural analgesia was associated with an increased risk of assisted vaginal birth (RR 1.42, 95% CI 1.28 to 1.57, 23 trials, 7935 women), maternal hypotension (RR 18.23, 95% CI 5.09 to 65.35, eight trials, 2789 women), motor-blockade (RR 31.67, 95% CI 4.33 to 231.51, three trials, 322 women), maternal fever (RR 3.34, 95% CI 2.63 to 4.23, six trials, 2741 women), urinary retention (RR 17.05, 95% CI 4.82 to 60.39, three trials, ...
Pencil-point needles have been shown to cause less tissue and nerve damage than beveled cutting needles. Despite this, trauma to the spinal cord or conus medullaris is probably more closely associated with the level of needle insertion than the type of needle. Studies have shown that clinicians are not good at accurately identifying the lumber intervertebral spaces, often inserting the needle one, two, or more spaces higher than intended.. Tuffiers line, drawn between the superior iliac crests, is commonly used as a starting point to identify lumber interspaces. It usually crosses at the level of the L4 spinous process, but not reliably so. Obesity, pregnancy, and the lateral position, often used for neuraxial block placement, all increase the inaccuracy of this method.. It is recommended that spinal needle insertion should ideally be below L3 to minimize the chance of spinal cord injury. It is also worth noting that the position of the orifice in pencil-point needles is further back from the ...
BACKGROUND: Epidural analgesia leads to increased risk of instrumental vaginal delivery (IVD). There is debate about whether or not posture in second-stage labour influences the incidence of spontaneous vaginal birth (SVB). OBJECTIVES: In nulliparous women with epidural analgesia, does a policy of adopting an upright position throughout second-stage labour increase the incidence of SVB compared with a policy of adopting a lying-down position? DESIGN: Two-arm randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Maternity units in England and Wales. PARTICIPANTS: Nulliparous women aged ≥ 16 years, at ≥ 37 weeks gestation with singleton cephalic presentation and intended SVB, in second-stage labour with an epidural providing effective pain relief. INTERVENTIONS: (1) Upright position to maintain the pelvis in as vertical a plane as possible; and (2) lying-down position to maintain the pelvis in as horizontal a plane as possible. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcome measure was incidence of SVB. Secondary
It was also hoped that the opioid-related side effects of nausea, vomiting, pruritus, sedation and respiratory depression could be reduced. However, all of these side effects can occur as well as two additional ones, urinary retention and late onset respiratory depression.. The specific benefits for epidural analgesia are particularly attractive and relevant in some subgroups of patients such as the elderly, the obese or those with chronic respiratory disease. An effective epidural will enable a patient to deep breathe, cough and move with ease. This in turn facilitates a more speedy recovery with a reduction in co-morbidities such as chest infections and deep. Results of studies are inconsistent and must be interpreted cautiously; it is difficult to show a benefit in low-risk patients. At least one study has shown a shorter hospital stay and reduced morbidity in morbidly obese patients who received epidural opioids postoperatively [2]. The effects on the metabolic stress response (increase of ...

Epidurals are associated with prolongation of labour and may increase the operative vaginal delivery rate but there is no evidence that they increase the caesarean section rate. Several studies have compared ropivacaine and bupivacaine for labour analgesia and studies consistently show that ropivacaine is less potent than bupivacaine. Several studies suggest intrathecal opioids may increase the incidence of fetal bradycardia; however the magnitude of this increase is difficult to determine and may be small ...

What the Anesthesiologist Should Know before the Operative Procedure Multiple modalities exist for nonpharmacologic analgesia for labor and delivery.

Nonpharmacologic analgesia is not relevant to operative delivery such as cesarean or forceps-assisted…. ...
The most common side effect of pain medicines and anesthesia is drowsiness. Your child may sleep more than usual after surgery because of the pain medicine, and because sleep is the bodys way of healing itself. The nurse will be checking to see how easily your child wakes up.. Other possible side effects are slow breathing, nausea (upset stomach), vomiting (throwing up), and itching. Medicines may be given to your child to help with any nausea, vomiting, or itching. Your child will be on monitors so that the nurses can watch the breathing rate and oxygen saturation.. Some children have numbness or tingling, especially in their legs. If your child has this feeling, tell your nurse. Although it is usually temporary, your nurse will check your child. A nurse will help your child the first time he or she gets out of bed. Sometimes a change in the medicine dose can decrease the numbness.. ...

As a working doula, what can I say about epidurals today? I have three things to say about them. First, if you are giving birth in a non-rural part of the U.S., you should decide what you think about having an epidural prior to your birth. You should read about them and discuss them with your care provider (doctor or midwife) and also your doula.. Second, please realize that most mothers can give birth without an epidural and that there are distinct advantages to not having an epidural. All the mothers who have spoken to me about giving birth without pain medication have been glad that they did it! Not just some of them, all of them! That is significant. They may have different reasons, but moms who have a pain-med-free birth are proud of themselves. They have conquered their rite of passage into motherhood. They have accomplished something that no one can ever take away from them. Ever.. That isnt to say that moms who have an epidural (or other pain medications in labor) wont have a lovely ...
Women once had to endure labor and delivery without medication to ease the pain. Now, techniques like epidurals can make giving birth more calm, controlled, and comfortable.

  • Since combined spinal-epidural analgesia for labor is a relatively new technique, there are few studies which have evaluated its complications. (
  • A systemic review of randomised trials has shown that immersion during labour is associated with significant reductions in the use of epidural, spinal, or paracervical analgesia and in women's reports of pain, but highlighted there were insufficient data to determine the outcome from randomised trials of birth in water for women or their infants. (
  • EXPAREL® (bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension) is indicated for single-dose infiltration in patients aged 6 years and older to produce postsurgical local analgesia and in adults as an interscalene brachial plexus nerve block to produce postsurgical regional analgesia. (

  • Early compared with late neuraxial analgesia in nulliparous labor induction: a randomized controlled trial. (
  • EXPAREL should not be used in obstetrical paracervical block anesthesia. (
  • A combination of 2.5 mg of bupivacaine, 25 μg of fentanyl, and 250 μg of morphine intrathecally usually provides a 4-hour window of acceptable analgesia for patients without complications not anticipating protracted labour. (
  • CONCLUSION Physicians practising modern obstetrics in rural and small urban centres might find single-dose ITN a useful alternative to parenteral or epidural analgesia for appropriately selected patients. (
  • The patients belonging to group I showed longer duration (15.39 +/- 0.45 hours) of analgesia in comparison to group II patients (2.46 +/- 0.54 hours). (
  • The CRNA provides professional and competent anesthesia care to a wide variety of patients from neonatal through lifespan population, requiring surgical, obstetrical and other anesthesia services. (
