Background: The minimum local analgesic concentration (MLAC) has been defined as the median effective local analgesic concentration in a 20-ml volume for epidural analgesia in the first stage of labor. The aim of this study was to assess the relative analgesic potencies of epidural bupivacaine and ropivacaine by determining their respective minimum local analgesic concentrations. Methods: Seventy-three parturients at ≤7 cm cervical dilation who requested epidural analgesia were allocated to one… CONTINUE READING
