Labor Analgesia in the Latent Phrase

03:29 EDT 25th May 2015 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Painless labor is an essential part in woman's health care. Labor analgesia in the active phrase is in popular use currently. However, parturients are still haunted by the labor delivery pain in the latent phrase up to 7-8 hours, especially for the nulliparas. Therefore, we hypothesized that labor analgesia in the latent phrase of the first delivery stage would provide superior health care for laboring women. In addition, such analgesia technique would not prolong the time of uterine dilation and labor delivering.

Doula Combined Latent Phrase Epidural Analgesia in Primiparous Women

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 ...

Intravenous Remifentanil Patient-controlled Analgesia (PCA) and Epidural Patient Controlled Epidural Analgesia (PCEA) for Labor Analgesia

Women requesting analgesia do not always wish to receive a potent analgesic method, and may fear the risks of epidural analgesia. Study Aim: To determine whether remifentanil is effective...

Influence of Epidural Analgesia in Elective Laparoscopic Colorectal Resections

Epidural anaesthesia in open surgery is a effective method for analgesia and has a positive effect on postoperative resolution of ileus. In laparoscopic surgery, the role of epidural surge...

Prospective, Randomised, Single-Blinded, Monocentric Clinical Study to Compare Postoperative Analgesia and Outcome After Combined Paravertebral and Intrathecal Versus Thoracic Epidural Analgesia for Thoracotomy

The purpose of this study is to compare whether epidural analgesia would provide equal analgesia than combining intrathecal opioids with thoracic paravertebral local anesthetics.

Effect of Preemptive Epidural Analgesia in Labor on Cytokine Production

Intravenous Remifentanil versus Epidural Ropivacaine with Sufentanil for Labour Analgesia: A Retrospective Study.

Epidural catheter misplaced into the thoracic cavity: Utilized to provide interpleural analgesia.

Thoracic epidural analgesia is one of the most effective and time-tested modalities of providing postthoracotomy pain relief. It improves postoperative pulmonary outcome. Nevertheless, being a blind p...

Comparison of Perioperative Outcomes for Epidural Versus Intravenous Patient-Controlled Analgesia After Radical Cystectomy.

The use of patient-controlled epidural analgesia after various operations has been associated with an early return of bowel function, thus decreasing patients' length of stay (LOS). The primary aim of...

The Effect of Adding a Background Infusion to Patient-Controlled Epidural Labor Analgesia on Labor, Maternal, and Neonatal Outcomes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) has gained popularity, but it is still unclear whether adding a background infusion confers any benefit.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.

Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p710 and pp1240-1; J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Aug;65(2):209-12)

The injection of autologous blood into the epidural space either as a prophylactic treatment immediately following an epidural puncture or for treatment of headache as a result of an epidural puncture.

A rare epidural hematoma in the spinal epidural space, usually due to a vascular malformation (CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS) or TRAUMA. Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma is a neurologic emergency due to a rapidly evolving compressive MYELOPATHY.

Accumulation of blood in the EPIDURAL SPACE between the SKULL and the DURA MATER, often as a result of bleeding from the MENINGEAL ARTERIES associated with a temporal or parietal bone fracture. Epidural hematoma tends to expand rapidly, compressing the dura and underlying brain. Clinical features may include HEADACHE; VOMITING; HEMIPARESIS; and impaired mental function.
