  • spinal cord
  • Epidural administration (from Ancient Greek ἐπί, "on, upon" + dura mater) is a medical route of administration in which a drug or contrast agent is injected into the epidural space of the spinal cord. (wikipedia.org)
  • space
  • It is used by injecting it into the area, around a nerve that supplies the area, or into the spinal canal's epidural space. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a less common mode of MUA treatment, select injectable medications can be administered directly to affected synovial joints, spinal facet joints or into the surrounding epidural space. (wikipedia.org)
  • Based on Corning's own description of his experiments, it is apparent that his injections were made into the epidural space, and not the subarachnoid space. (wikipedia.org)
  • anaesthesia
  • In the practice of medicine (especially surgery and dentistry), anesthesia or anaesthesia is a state of temporary induced loss of sensation or awareness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Three broad categories of anaesthesia exist: General anesthesia suppresses central nervous system activity and results in unconsciousness and total lack of sensation. (wikipedia.org)
  • A patient under regional or local anesthesia remains conscious, unless general anaesthesia or sedation is administered at the same time. (wikipedia.org)
  • Examples include epidural anaesthesia and spinal anaesthesia. (wikipedia.org)

  • The technique of "single-shot" lumbar epidural anaesthesia was first developed in 1921 by Spanish military surgeon Fidel Pagés (1886-1923). (wikipedia.org)
  • This technique has some similarity to epidural anaesthesia, and lay people often confuse the two techniques. (wikipedia.org)
  • injections
  • In the early 1980s, several cases were reported of neurological deficits after inadvertent intrathecal injections intended for epidural delivery. (wikipedia.org)
  • local
  • it is fine for epidural patients if the epidural is just a type of local (marcaine. (allnurses.com)
  • The first two types are usually done under local or epidural anesthesia, and take about 30 minutes to perform. (wikipedia.org)
  • The epidural route is frequently employed by certain physicians and nurse anaesthetists to administer diagnostic (e.g. radiocontrast agents) and therapeutic (e.g., glucocorticoids) chemical substances, as well as certain analgesic and local anaesthetic agents. (wikipedia.org)
