Bolus injection through an epidural catheter may result in better distribution of anesthetic solution in the epidural space compared with continuous infusion of the same anesthetic solution. In this randomized, double-blind study we compared total bupivacaine consumption, need for supplemental epidural analgesia, quality of analgesia, and patient satisfaction in women who received programmed intermittent epidural boluses (PIEB) compared with continuous epidural infusion (CEI) for maintenance of… Expand
