A Comparison of Epidural Analgesia with 0.125% Ropivacaine with Fentanyl Versus 0.125% Bupivacaine with Fentanyl during Labor
TLDR
Using a patient-controlled epidural analgesia technique, ropivacaine 0.125% with fentanyl 2 &mgr;g/mL produces similar labor analgesia with significantly less motor block than an equivalent concentration of bupvacaine/fentanyl during labor. Expand
Serious Complications Related to Obstetric Anesthesia: The Serious Complication Repository Project of the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology
TLDR
The Serious Complication Repository Project establishes the incidence of serious complications in obstetric anesthesia and there were too few complications in each category to identify risk factors associated with each. Expand
A Comparison of Intrathecal Fentanyl and Sufentanil for Labor Analgesia
TLDR
The relative potency of intrathecal sufentanil to fentanyl for labor analgesia is 4.4:1, and when making a choice between fentanyl and sufENTanil, one must consider other important factors, such as the higher cost of sufency and the greater risk of dosing error. Expand
0.125% Ropivacaine Is Similar to 0.125% Bupivacaine for Labor Analgesia Using Patient-Controlled Epidural Infusion
TLDR
It is concluded that 0.125% ropivacaine and bupvacaine are clinically indistinguishable and are both highly effective for labor analgesia using PCEA. Expand
A Comparison of Remifentanil and Morphine Sulfate for Acute Postoperative Analgesia after Total Intravenous Anesthesia with Remifentanil and Propofol
TLDR
Remifentanil provided safe and effective postoperative analgesia when administered at a final rate of 0.05–0.23 micro gram [center dot] kg sup ‐1 [ center dot] min sup ‑1 in the immediate postextubation period. Expand
Dural Puncture with a 27-Gauge Whitacre Needle as Part of a Combined Spinal–Epidural Technique Does Not Improve Labor Epidural Catheter Function
TLDR
Dural puncture with a 27-gauge Whitacre needle without subarachnoid drug administration during combined spinal–epidural labor analgesia did not improve epiduralLabor analgesia quality or reduce catheter manipulation or replacement rate when compared with a traditional epidural technique. Expand
Intrathecal Sufentanil Compared to Epidural Bupivacaine for Labor Analgesia
TLDR
The rapid onset of analgesia and lack of motor blockade from intrathecal sufentanil injection may be advantageous in certain clinical situations, however, pruritus is common; hypotension may occur; and extensive dermatomal spread suggests that early-onset respiratory depression could occur. Expand
Ropivacaine 0.075% and Bupivacaine 0.075% with Fentanyl 2 &mgr;g/mL are Equivalent for Labor Epidural Analgesia
TLDR
It is concluded that 0.075% ropivacaine and bupvacaine, with fentanyl, are equally effective for labor analgesia using the patient-controlled epidural analgesia technique. Expand
A randomized, double‐blind, dose‐ranging, pilot study of intravenous granisetron in the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy1
TLDR
Granisetron at doses of 0.3 mg administered just prior to the end of surgery suggested a trend of improved efficacy compared to placebo in preventing postoperative nausea and vomiting in the first 6 h after abdominal hysterectomy. Expand
