Abstract:

To create high-fidelity epidural simulators it is important to incorporate in vivo epidural pressures. This study presents the results of insertion pressures as a Tuohy needle is advanced through to the epidural space on a porcine cadaver followed with a clinical trial of labouring women of varying BMIs. The ultimate aim is to use these measured epidural pressures together with ultrasound and MRI images for the development of a novel epidural simulator to aid training.
