Epidural space localization using loss of resistance technique with air (ALOR) is controversial in obstetric analgesia due to a minor efficacy and risk of complications, compared with loss...
This study sought to perform the feasibility assessment of a new, non-invasive device for Loss of Resistance (LOR) detection in clinical settings. The device in charge is a mechatronic dev...
The purpose of this study is to compare how well the CompuFlo® computerized syringe pump works as compared to the traditional method of inserting an epidural (a needle placed in one's bac...
In the investigators' institution, the failure rate for thoracic epidural blocks is 23.1%. This stems from the prevalence of trainee operators coupled with the non-specific nature of loss-...
Traditionally, loss-of-resistance (LOR) to air or saline with a special ground-glass syringe is the technique used to identify epidural space, but failure rates up to 30% have been reporte...
The failure rate of epidural anesthesia using the loss of resistance technique is 13-23%.
The use of ultrasound (US) in peripheral nerve blocks and fascial plane blocks have increased the procedural success and minimized complications associated with blind techniques but its use has not pe...
We investigated the efficacy of syringe filters and membrane filters with different pore sizes for recovering Campylobacter. A syringe filter with a 0.45 μm pore size achieved the highest recovery ...
General anaesthesia combined with epidural analgesia may have a beneficial effect on clinical outcomes. However, use of epidural analgesia for cardiac surgery is controversial due to a theoretical inc...
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.
Procedure in which an anesthetic is injected into the epidural space.
