BACKGROUND: Fentanyl is an opioid drug widely used as a co-adjuvant in abdominal delivery, a fact that justifies its pharmacokinetic study under these conditions. OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and placental transfer of fentanyl in parturients whose pregnancies were resolved by cesarian section with epidural anesthesia. PATIENTS and METHODS: Ten clinically normal parturients who delivered at term received 5 ml of 2% lidocaine hydrochloride without a… Expand

Fentanyl is an opioid analgesic used to treat obstetrical pain in parturient women through epidural or intravenous route, and unfortunately can also be abused by pregnant women. Fentanyl is known toExpand
Rates of Fentanyl Positivity in Neonatal Urine Following Maternal Analgesia During Labor and Delivery.
TLDR
It is established that maternal fentanyl analgesia is strongly associated with positive neonatal urine fentanyl screens and suggests that more judicious use of these laboratory tests may be warranted. Expand
Distribution of fentanyl in the placental intervillous space and in the different maternal and fetal compartments in term pregnant women
TLDR
The present study demonstrated that the placental intervillous space acted as a site of fentanyl deposit, demonstrating that there was no drug uptake by fetal tissues nor metabolism of the drug by the fetus despite the high rates of placental transfer. Expand
The uptake of transdermal fentanyl in a pregnant sheep model.
TLDR
The uptake of fentanyl varied between animals, and the placental transfer rate of fentanyl was 77% in all ewes. Expand
Effect of Labor Epidural Analgesia With Hydromorphone on Neonatal Neurobehavior and Breastfeeding Behavior in the First 24 Hours of Life
TLDR
Data indicate that, by itself, epidural analgesia with hydromorphone does not decrease effectiveness of breastfeeding behaviors, and the presence of multiple stressful events or interventions contributes to breastfeeding difficulties and necessitate intensive help from the nurse to achieve success in breastfeeding. Expand
A Randomized Control Trial of Bupivacaine and Fentanyl versus Fentanyl-only for Epidural Analgesia during the Second Stage of Labor
TLDR
Use of epidural bupivacaine/fentanyl or a fentanyl-only infusion during the second stage of labor did not affect the duration of the secondstage of labor, degree of motor blockade, mode of delivery, pain relief, and maternal or neonatal outcomes. Expand
Side Effects and Efficacy of Neuraxial Opioids in Pregnant Patients at Delivery: A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
The risk of respiratory depression appears to be increased with less lipophilic opioids such as morphine but can be reduced with careful patient selection and monitoring and the risk of pruritus and nausea and vomiting appear to be dose-related. Expand
Drugs and medicines in pregnancy: the placental disposition of opioids.
TLDR
Understanding the consequences of opioid treatment or dependence during pregnancy requires an investigation of the placental disposition (metabolism and transfer), as well as of the impact of the drugs on the placential function. Expand
Transferência placentária de drogas Placental drug transfer
TLDR
The recommendation for epileptic patients who have been clinically asymptomatic for two years is to discontinue the drugs they are taking and if seizures occur it is advisable to consult a neurologist to discuss anticonvulsant therapy with better benefi ts and less side effects. Expand

Maternal and umbilical cord concentrations of fentanyl after epidural analgesia for cesarean section.
TLDR
Even if fentanyl levels reaching the fetus after cesarean section under epidural anesthesia, using local anesthetics with 100 micrograms of fentanyl, are within safe range values, the likelihood of fentanyl uptake by fetal tissues calls for a cautious use of repeated fentanyl administration. Expand
[Fentanyl in peridural obstetrical analgesia. Evaluation after 4 years' use].
TLDR
A pharmacokinetic study shows that the levels in the mother and the fetus begin to coincide more with the number of doses that are given and pass, and analgesia is earlier, more complete and more prolonged when fentanyl is added. Expand
Maternal and neonatal blood concentrations of bupivacaine
TLDR
Studying the concentrations of bupivacaine and lignocaine both in the foetal blood at delivery and in the maternal blood at intervals during the administration of lumbar extradural analgesia in obstetrics found that the risk offoetal intoxication cannot be ruled out with a new local analgesic.

Obesity and the Cephalad Spread of Analgesia following Epidural Administration of Bupivacaine for Cesarean Section
TLDR
It is concluded that higher levels of epidural block should be anticipated in obese obstetrical patients in proportion to their obesity. Expand
Clinical Pharmacokinetics of Alfentanil, Fentanyl and Sufentanil
TLDR
Alfentanil has the most rapid analgesic onset and time to peak effect as well as the shortest distribution and elimination half-lives, while the volume of distribution and total body clearance of this agent are smaller when compared with those of fentanyl and sufentanin. Expand
Pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and clinical uses of fentanyl, sufentanil, and alfentanil.
TLDR
Fentanyl, sufent anil, and alfentanil are potent synthetic opioids that are used for anesthesia and postoperative analgesia and the advantages of these opioids compared with morphine are short duration of action, lack of hyperglycemic response to surgery, decrease in catecholamine levels, and high lipid solubility.

TLDR
Both groups demonstrated a similar degree of mild to moderate respiratory depression postoperatively, which was assessed with continuous respiratory inductance plethysmography and sequential arterial blood gas analysis. Expand
Pharmacokinetic Changes During Pregnancy and Their Clinical Relevance
TLDR
The dynamic physiological changes that occur in the maternal-placental-fetal unit during pregnancy influence the pharmacokinetic processes of drug absorption, distribution and elimination, as well as the fetal exposure to the drugs taken by the mother. Expand

TLDR
Available data regarding the pharmacokinetics of therapeutic regimens during pregnancy do not provide clinically relevant guidelines for the formulation of therapy for individual patients. Expand
