EPI-A is the device that finds out the epidural space automatically based on the results of an analysis of the reaction forces received as the needle advances.
Identification of the epidural space during injection is critical, yet epidural injection is considered the most difficult technique to acquire since a success rate of it is as low as 80%. Side effects or complications include nausea, spinal cavity, low blood pressure headaches (also known as post-dural puncture headache) at the range of 0.5-3% incidence rates, and even paralysis or nerve damage in very rare cases.
Epidural anesthesia also called as regional anesthesia, blocks pain in an area of the body by blocking nerve impulses into the epidural space. Epidural space, which is right outside of the membrane that protects the spinal cord. This aids in reducing the sensation of the lower part of the body. The epidural anesthetic is the most common method to reduce pain during normal or C-section delivery.
