Some painful medical procedures, especially surgery and child labor, are facilitated by injecting anesthetic substances or epidural analgesia in the lower part of the back. And this is done through the insertion of a needle and catheter, which is then retained throughout the whole procedure to administer pain relievers for as long as the medical operation lasts. This procedure, which was first identified as far back as 1921 by Fidel Pagés surrounding, got its name from the spinal cord’s epidural region. But it was not until about twenty years ago that it became widely used.
The Revolution in the Childbirth Delivery Process
Child labor is very painful. No wonder epidural procedure remains a prevalent procedure. In 2018, seventy-one percent of pregnant women underwent the procedure. But this process is very delicate as the needle must not go too far into puncturing the dura mater of the spine. This could lead to severe complications. Usually, the patient is either lying on the bed or seated. To facilitate the kind of steady posture needed during and after this process, doctors or anesthesiologists rely on many important devices. One of them is the Epidural Positioning device, also known as the EPD.
