Childbirth is one of the most painful events that a woman is likely to experience, and thus is a major concern for most parturient. Severe pain releases stress mediators and may thus compromise fetus well-being if placental perfusion is decreased. Epidural analgesia is the golden standard for the management of severe labor pain. However, it could not always be used both due the parturient related factors and the organizational reasons.However, the knowledge on safety and efficacy of oxycodone involving mother, fetus and newborn is limited.
Aim of the study is firstly, to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oxycodone in labor pain healthy parturients. Secondly, to measure parturient's blood oxycodone concentration during labour and fetal concentration from placental umbilical vein and artery right after birth.

Oxycodone is used to treat pain in early labor, however the effect of oxycodone to placental or fetal circulation has not been evaluated. Oxycodone is increasingly used to treat labor pain...
There are conflicting results in earlier studies concerning the safety and efficacy of epidural oxycodone. In a study by Bäcklund and colleagues, epidural oxycodone was as effective as in...
Patients undergoing surgery (thyroidectomy and hysterectomy) will postoperatively receive oxycodone intravenously (IV) as pain management with morphine as an escape medicine, if there is i...
The purpose of this study is to test the oxycodone/naloxone combination compared to oxycodone alone in patient's specific type of "chronic cancer pain".
Oxycodone is one of the most widely used opioids for pain treatment. Many studies demonstrated good efficacy of oxycodone on postoperative pain. In this study, we assess the efficacy and s...
Oxycodone or dexmedetomidine (DEX) alone are widely used in clinical practice. The aim of this study was to observe the effect of two oxycodone and DEX combinations on postoperative sleep quality.
We evaluated postoperative pain control and narcotic usage after thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) arthroplasty or open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of the distal radius in patients given opiates ...
Prescription opioid abuse continues to be a public health concern. Oxycodone ARIR is an immediate-release (IR) oxycodone tablet composed of multiple overlapping barriers that deter manipulation of the...
This pilot study investigated the use of virtual reality (VR) in laboring women. Twenty-seven women were observed for equivalent time during unmedicated contractions in the first stage of labor both w...
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of two-stage warm compress technique on the pain duration of the first and second labor stages and neonatal outcomes. The clinical trial was done on 150...
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).
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.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
