Complications of Epidural Anesthesia during Labor
Abstract. Epidural anesthesia during childbirth is one of the most popular methods of pain relief. The catheter is installed in the epidural space in the lumbar spinal column, followed by the introduction of drugs, eliminating pain in the lower part of the anterior abdominal wall, as well as the birth canal. One of the advantages of epidural anesthesia is that the patient remains conscious throughout her labor, but does not feel pain. In this article, we will look at the most common methods of epidural anesthesia in labor, as well as methods for their treatment.
