The Influence of Needle Diameter on Post Dural Puncture Headache

The purpose of this study is to determine whether injection needle pen point type 'PP Gauge 25' should be recommended as a primary choice of needle (in stead of 'PP Gauge 27') for healthy pregnant women who at delivery (vaginal or cesarean section) get spinal anesthesia.

Phase N/A

Treatment Prior to Injection and Biopsy of the Vulva

To diagnose skin conditions of the vulva and determine appropriate treatment, a biopsy is often taken as an outpatient procedure. Prior to biopsy, the skin is cleansed and injected with a numbing solution. These injections can be quite painful in this sensitive area. Ice has been used as topical anesthesia ...

Phase N/A

Magnesium for Shivering in Epidural Lidocaine Deliveries

Women who have epidurals in place and go on to require a Cesarean delivery typically have their epidurals 'topped-up' with a fast onset local anesthetic to ensure the lower body is fully numb for surgery. This is called an epidural 'top-up'. However, a side effect of epidural top-ups is shivering, ...

Phase N/A

Analgesia Effects of Intravenous Ketamine After Spinal Anesthesia for Non-elective Cesarean Section

This randomized double blind study will be conducted in pregnant woman planned for non elective cesarean section under spinal anesthesia. Ketamine group will receive intravenous 0.25 mg/kg and placebo group will receive same amount of normal saline after spinal anesthesia prior to skin incision. Postoperative outcomes measures are total opioid ...


Three Protocols of Phenylephrine Infusion in Cesarean Delivery

Maternal hypotension is a common complication after spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery (CD). Phenylephrine (PE) is the most popular vasopressor for prevention of post-spinal hypotension (PSH) during CD; however, the most appropriate protocol for PE administration is still unknown. The most common PE protocols used for prophylaxis against PSH are: ...


CODEPAD (Collaborative Outcomes of DEpression and Pain Associated With Delivery)

If the patients have not decided on which pain relief method to be used, and would like to take part in this study, they will be assigned to either epidural or non-epidural pain relief for labour based on the study randomization result. Blood samples will be drawn to study the ...


Fixed Dose Spinal Bupivacaine for Cesarean Delivery

The study is designed to compare the effectiveness of spinal anesthesia performed with fixed dose of hyperbaric bupivacaine regardless of patient's height and weight and anesthesia with the dose of bupivacaine that is adjusted to their height. Our clinical experience shows that spinal anesthesia using specific, relatively high dose of ...

Phase N/A

Long Term Outcomes Following a Post Dural Puncture Headache

Introduction Epidural analgesia is considered a gold standard method for treatment of labor pain . However one of the major risks with epidural analgesia is an accidental dural puncture, a common complication occurring in 0.4-6% of the obstetric population . ADP increases the risk of developing a post dural puncture ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Changes of Venous Return After Spinal and Epidural Analgesia and Anesthesia by Ultrasound Guided Vena Cava Diameter Measurement

After approval by the Institutional Review Board and patient consent, term pregnant patients (>37 week gestation) admitted to the obstetric service of Augusta University Medical Center, who require administration of neuraxial analgesia for labor or regional anesthesia for cesarean section, will be included in the study. The consent will be ...

Phase N/A

Two Fluid Strategies for Prevention of Post-dural Puncture Headache

In this study, the investigators will compare restrictive fluid therapy and liberal fluid therapy in prophylaxis against postdural puncture headache. The restrictive group will not receive preoperative fluid loading, and will receive intraoperative crystalloids at rate of 10 mL/Kg/hour followed by postoperative crystalloids at rate of 2 mL/Kg/hour for hours. ...
