The study presents results from clinical trial measurements of changing pressures during Tuohy epidural needle insertions for obstetric parturients of various BMI. We identify correlations between BMI and epidural pressure, and the thicknesses and depths of ligaments and epidural space as measured from MRI and ultrasound scans. This can be used to develop engineered models of human tissue which can adapt to model various BMI patients, for an epidural simulator which allows a novel patient-specific approach for practice on obese patients.
