Taukazahn However we must strive to reduce any effect on duration of labour and instrumental vaginal delivery rates by minimizing motor block through the use of low-dose LA and opioid obstftric. A meta-analysis of RCTs comparing epidural with non-epidural analgesia during labour found that instrumental vaginal deliveries were more common in those receiving epidural analgesia, with an odds ratio of 2.

Continuous infusion epidural analgesia in obstetrics: It undergoes ester hydrolysis; minimizing placental transmission but its duration of action is too short for analgesia. Epidural analgesia during labour-comparison of 0. Toxicity concerns may seem irrelevant when low dose techniques are used, but during protracted labours, the total amount of LA may be high, and large boluses may be required for operative delivery.
Only preservative-free morphine should be used intrathecally. There was a problem providing the content you requested After childbirth there is no difference in the incidence of long-term back pain, disability or movement restriction between women who have epidurals and those who have not.
It provides effective analgesia and high maternal satisfaction rates, as mothers feel they are in control of their analgesia. In view of the above, the present study assesses the clinical effectiveness of continuous lumbar epidural analgesia for vaginal delivery by using 0. The definition of prolonged second stage in women who have received regional analgesia has been revised by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists i. Effect of epidural vs parenteral opioid analgesia on the progress of labour: It is conceivable that as epidural analgesia becomes more refined, the effect of the obstetric management may overshadow that of the epidural analgesia.
However, it appears that the drugs are not equipotent. It is now well recognized that the only consistently effective method of pain in labour is lumbar epidural analgesia. They do not last as long as traditional top-ups and may be inadequate for instrumental vaginal delivery. The cause of the pyrexia is not fully understood but appears to be independent of infection. Epidurals 0. J Anesth Clin Pharmacol ; 20 3: The mode of delivery and the Apgar scores of the neonates at 1 and 5 minutes were comparable.
The following statement from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists summarizes the background to these figures: Neuraxial opioids have been associated with pruritus, nausea and vomiting, hypotension, urinary retention, uterine hyperstimulation, fetal bradycardia and maternal respiratory depression. Disadvantages of CSE often cited are that they are more invasive and costly.
Variations in practice between obstetricians, even within a single obstetric unit, can and do result in widely different SVD and operative delivery rates. In theory, LDI should decrease anaesthetic workload, provide more constant analgesia and better haemodynamic stability and sterility. A greater proportion of parturient achieved a maximum level These findings are supported by a meta-analysis of impact studies in which a dramatic increase in the epidural rate had no impact on operative delivery rates.
Effect of epidural analgesia on labour and outcome. Though randomized ostetric trials RCT 0. Maternal satisfaction may be increased by the fact that even if not ambulant, women are more mobile in bed. Pain in labour is an extremely agonising experience for most women. Randomized study of long-term outcome after epidural versus obsteteic analgesia during labour.
With low dose top-ups, there is a reduction in total LA dose when compared with epidural infusions. Greater lipid solubility theoretically means that diamorphine rapidly penetrates the cord, leaving little drug available for cephalad spread. In the same meta-analysis of RCTs of epidural vs non-epidural analgesia, epidural analgesia obstetroc found to prolong labour, though 0. Forty parturient admitted to Chennai Medical College and Hospital, Trichy, for vaginal delivery and who were in active labor was given 8 ml of 0.
Several recent large RCTs comparing epidural with non-epidural analgesia during labour have shown that epidural analgesia does not increase the caesarean section rate, whether attributable to dystocia or fetal distress.

E-mail: moc. Abstract Background and Aims: This study aims to compare the minimum effective concentration of local anesthetic LA bupivacaine and ropivacaine with highly lipid soluble opioids fentanyl for providing optimal labor epidural analgesia. Settings and Design: The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of racemic bupivacaine 0. Methodology: Sixty parturients requesting for labor analgesia were divided into two groups. In both groups, the drug was given in 5 ml fractionated doses at 5 min interval.

However, it is not always associated with improved maternal satisfaction. Maternal satisfaction may be increased by the fact that even if not ambulant, women are obsyetric mobile in bed. Epidural analgesia in labour BJA Education Oxford Academic Hence, various adjutants like adrenaline, clonidine and particularly opioids have been used to reduce the amount of local anaesthetics used and yet provide satisfactory analgesia. However, there have recently been a number of well-designed RCTs of epidural vs non-epidural analgesia that seem to have finally addressed some of the issues surrounding epidural analgesia in labour. Maternal satisfaction is an important measure but is influenced by many other factors, including outcome of labour, support and interaction obatetric staff, and control over pain rather than its amelioration. There is a theoretical risk of damage to the neurological structures within the pelvis with longer labours, but this is difficult to quantify.

Akigore There was a problem providing the content you requested Ropivacaine 0. Once again, the clinical importance of these isolated reports is unclear. This may merely reflect the fact that women with complicated, painful labours might request epidural analgesia more often. The effect of a rapid change in availability of epidural analgesia on the Cesarean delivery rate: However, an effect on outcome of labour has not been shown. Several recent, well-powered RCTs confirm that epidural analgesia during labour is not associated with an increased incidence of back pain after childbirth.
