  • Background and Objectives. Subarachnoid sufentanil 5 μg during labor is known to have variable results. However, subarachnoid sufentanil 5 μg plus bupivacaine 1 mg provides good quality labor analgesia of 100 minutes' average duration. The objective of this study was to examine the effects of adding epinephrine 25 μg to this mixture. Methods. Forty‐two parturients with less than 5 cm cervical dilation participated in this double‐blind, randomized study. A combined spinal‐epidural technique was… CONTINUE READING
