Ropivacaine and fentanyl concentrations in patient-controlled epidural analgesia during labor: a volume-range study.

PMID:  14633563     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: There is no clinical reason for increasing the concentration of the patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) solution when labor becomes active provided that an effective dose is already being administered with each demand. The quality of PCEA depends on the drug mass given with each demand rather than the concentration of the pump solution.
