Tetracaine Combined Spinal Epidural (CSE) Versus Bupivacaine CSE
The investigators hypothesis is that spinal tetracaine with fentanyl and epinephrine used for CSE labor analgesia volume will last a significantly longer period of time that that of spinal bupivacaine with fentanyl. After informed consent is obtained for the study, subjects meeting criteria when analgesia is requested will be randomized to receive a combined spinal-epidural containing either tetracaine 2 mg with fentanyl and epinephrine or bupivacaine 2 mg with fentanyl and epinephrine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Pain associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR in CHILDBIRTH. It is caused primarily by UTERINE CONTRACTION as well as pressure on the CERVIX; BLADDER; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Labor pain mostly occurs in the ABDOMEN; the GROIN; and the BACK.
A narcotic analgesic that can be used for the relief of most types of moderate to severe pain, including postoperative pain and the pain of labor. Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.
The beginning of true OBSTETRIC LABOR which is characterized by the cyclic uterine contractions of increasing frequency, duration, and strength causing CERVICAL DILATATION to begin (LABOR STAGE, FIRST ).
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
Obstetric Labor Complications
Medical problems associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR, such as BREECH PRESENTATION; PREMATURE OBSTETRIC LABOR; HEMORRHAGE; or others. These complications can affect the well-being of the mother, the FETUS, or both.
The purpose of this study to compare the use of spinal-epidural versus traditional labor epidural on maternal and fetal effects. The hope is to determine the safest and most effective epid...
This study studies labor epidural analgesia and compares dilute (0.0625%) with concentrated (0.25%) bupivacaine. We hypothesize that patients randomize to receive the concentrated drug wi...
This is a research study testing SABER™-Bupivacaine (an experimental pain-relieving medication). SABER™-Bupivacaine is designed to continuously deliver bupivacaine, a common local ane...
The purpose of this study is to see which dose of epidural neostigmine is the best additive to use with the numbing medication used in an epidural during labor.

The lidocaine/tetracaine medicated plaster comprises a lidocaine/tetracaine 70 mg/70 mg patch and a controlled heat-assisted drug delivery pod that increases the diffusion of lidocaine and tetraca...
Background/Objective: Bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension is a novel, prolonged-release formulation of bupivacaine. The time to onset of analgesia following an injection of liposome bupivacaine...
This randomized, active-controlled study evaluated the extent and duration of analgesia after administration of liposome bupivacaine (LB), a novel formulation of bupivacaine, compared with bupivacaine...
: The goals of this study are threefold: (1) to determine what effect epinephrine has on the duration of bupivacaine finger block anesthesia; (2) to see whether the duration of action of bupivacaine o...
PURPOSE: We quantified the dose-sparing effect of epinephrine by comparing the median effective dose (ED(50)) of intrathecal hyperbaric bupivacaine co-administered with epinephrine with the ED(50) of...
