Epidural and spinal anaesthesia are called ‘regional anaesthesia’ or ‘regional nerve blocks’. They are used for surgery and also for pain relief in labour. Although they may appear similar, they are in fact quite different. The differences are explained below.
Modern anaesthesia is generally very safe. Every anaesthetic has a risk of side effects and
complications. Whilst these are usually temporary, some of them may cause long-term problems.
An epidural is given into your back (outside the spinal cord) by means of a very fine plastic tube
which is inserted through an epidural needle (The needle is removed after the tubing is in place).
Local anaesthetic and other pain relieving drugs are given through the tubing to decrease pain. It
works by blocking the pain signals from reaching your brain. The fine plastic tube is taped onto
your back and drugs can be given through this fine tube for a number of days.
You may have a constant slow infusion or you may have a button to push to give yourself a
dose of the pain relief. This is called Patient Controlled Epidural Analgesia (PCEA).
An epidural may be used on its own for your anaesthetic or combined with a general
A spinal anaesthetic is where a single injection of anaesthetic drugs, is given into the ‘spinal fluid’ of
your back by a very fine needle. It works by blocking the pain signals from reaching your
brain. It also blocks the movement signals which mean that you will be unable to move your legs
while it is working. This type of anaesthesia is quick to work (usually within 5 to 10 minutes) but
only lasts from 1 - 4 hours. You can stay awake or in some cases you can sleep through the surgery by the anaesthetist giving you a sedation or a general anaesthetic as well.
‘A drip’ (IV fluid) is always put into your vein before the spinal or epidural is done. While you will be pain free during an operation, you may feel strange, pressure sensations around the area of the operation.
Potential benefits of an epidural or spinal anaesthetic
• Better pain relief than morphine type drugs
• Less morphine related side effects such as nausea. (if you suffer from morphine type nausea, tell your anaesthetist)
• Less risk of lung complications and infections
• Improved bowel recovery after bowel surgery
• Improved blood flow after vascular surgery
• A quicker return to eating and drinking.

MOST POWERFUL AND TRUSTED LOVE SPELL CASTER 2022
I remember one day I sat down and counted all the men I have met in my life and I felt so small because I know I am not perfect but I give all I can to the man aiming to remain with him but at the end of the day I remained alone. Men could come and go and I couldn't see the money I was working for being paid a good salary but I couldn't prosper when the time came that I failed to put bread on the table. My friend Totty Brobyn advised me to contact Dr Azuka +2349166175418 for a special prayer of cleansing. Dr Azuka advised me that I must do a cleansing prayer to take away all the bad luck and genealogical curse which were following me, we did the prayer online since I was far from him. It took me three days to realize changes in my life. I was promoted at work, my boyfriend also came back to me and proposed to me we have been together for two years now and things are fine. We are preparing for our wedding this December. I know that prayers work and I strongly believe the prayers of email@example.com helped me to regain my happiness thanks, Dr Azuka.

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.
I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

I’m recommending Dr Akhigbe to everyone who have herpes simplex virus to get the cure from him. I was diagnosed with genital herpes in 2018 and I have been searching and asking questions to see if I could get something to cure the disease because I did not believe what the doctors say that no cure is found yet. I came across a comment and the person testified how she was cured from herpes and hpv after using Dr Akhigbe herbal medicine. I quickly contact Dr Akhigbe and explain my problem to him and he prepare the herbs and send it to me through UPS and gave me instructions on how to use it and tell me to go for checkup after usage which i did after two weeks of taken the herbal medicine and my result was NEGATIVE. I waited another month and retested the result was still NEGATIVE and my doctor told me that I am completely free from herpes. Am so happy and grateful to Dr Akhigbe for what he has done for me and I will continue to share this for people out there to know that there is a cure for herpes. You can contact Dr Akhigbe on email and WhatsApp to get the cure from him. Email: Drakhigbeherbalhome5@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2349021374574 .
