  4. Advances in obstetric anesthesia: ambulation during labor with combined spinal-epidural analgesia

    Advances in obstetric anesthesia: ambulation during labor with combined spinal-epidural analgesia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Epidural analgesia is widely considered as the most effective method of providing pain relief in labor. However, epidural labor analgesia is not a generic procedure and many technical modifications have been invented over time. Continuous search for a balanced labor...
  5. Evaluating the effect of preoperative oral gabapentin on postoperative pain in patients receiving spinal anaesthesia for lower limb surgery

    Evaluating the effect of preoperative oral gabapentin on postoperative pain in patients receiving spinal anaesthesia for lower limb surgery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Gabapentin has been used successfully as a non-opioid analgesic adjuvant for postoperative pain management. We hypothesised that gabapentin might be a useful adjuvant for postoperative analgesia in patients undergoing lower extremity surgery under subarachnoid block.
  6. Addition of adenosine to hyperbaric bupivacaine in spinal anaesthesia does not prolong postoperative analgesia in vaginal hysterectomy

    Addition of adenosine to hyperbaric bupivacaine in spinal anaesthesia does not prolong postoperative analgesia in vaginal hysterectomy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Systemic administration of adenosine produces anti-nociception. Although literature supports intrathecal adenosine for neuropathic pain, its efficacy in postoperative pain remains unproven. There has been no study on the efficacy of adenosine on postoperative pain when administered with hyperbaric bupivacaine...
