BACKGROUND:The use of parturient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) with a basal infusion is commonly used in laboring women. We compared a novel approach of providing basal intermittent boluses concurrently with PCEA: PCEA plus automated mandatory boluses (PCEA+AMB) versus PCEA plus basal continuous infusion (PCEA+BCI). We hypothesized that epidural local anesthetic consumption would be lower if basal intermittent boluses were used instead of a basal infusion. METHODS:We randomized 42… Expand
