Author Information Department of Anesthesiology, the Affiliated Hospital of Xuzhou Medical University, Xuzhou, Jiangsu, China Obstetric Anesthesia Digest 43(2):p 94-96, June 2023. | DOI: 10.1097/01.aoa.0000927928.78460.d8 Buy Metrics Abstract (Int J Obstet Anesth. 2022;51:103571) Previously, ideal programmed intermittent epidural bolus (PIEB) doses were unknown despite the wide belief that use of PIEB may reduce local anesthetic use, improve quality of analgesia and maternal satisfaction, and reduce motor block compared with continuous epidural infusion. This study compared 3 different dosages of a PIEB to determine impact on breakthrough pain and other labor analgesia factors. Copyright © 2023 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
