Abstract

These guidelines are concerned with the management of epidural analgesia in the hospital setting, including continuous infusions, patient-controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) and intermittent top-up injections. They are not concerned with the management of epidural analgesia for obstetrics, palliative care or management of persistent non-cancer pain.
