Title: Analgesia During Labour: A Comparison Between Two Methods: Epidural Marcaine And Intrathecal Pethidine In Pregnant Sudanese Ladies
Author: Abd Elmoneim, Mohammed
Abstract: This study was designed to determine the awareness of Sudanese ladies about epidural & spinal analgesia and to compare the various effects of epidural Marcaine versus intra-thecal Pethidine during labour . The prospective experimental study which was conducted at Suba university hospital in the period from August 2003 to January 2004 approached 78 healthy ladies .Only 37 ladies agreed to participate in the study (20 were given intra-thecal Pethidine and 17 epidural Marcaine), where as most of those who refused had no specific reasons. Contrary to the previous studies where epidural analgesia was considered as a factor for the increasing rate of instrumental delivery, in this study there was no statistically significant difference in the mode of delivery. The onset of analgesia among the group which received intra-thecal Pethidine was more rapid compared to epidural Marcaine,while the duration and quality of analgesia during the labour was significantly better in the latter group . Newborn in both groups were assessed by Apgar Score at 5 minutes and none of them had a score less than seven . Complication following intra-thecal Pethidine were mainly nausea & vomiting, in the epidural group there was no motor complication.
