Detailed Description:

Population 60 female during second stage of delivery

  • Inclusion criteria : all parturients requiring pain relief will choose between systemic or epidural analgesia.
  • Exclusion Criteria: all parturients with cardiac disease, neurological disease, endocrine disease, diabetes, hypertension or any parturients being treated with medications that might effect the cardiovascular autonomic system.
  • Method: A 10 minute recording of a 3 lead ECG will be performed during the second stage of the delivery (3-7 CM opening).

the parturient will be lying on her left side for that period.

  • 30 minutes after administration of either epidural or systemic Meperidine for pain relief, a second recording of maternal ECG will take place for 10 minutes.
  • estimated duration of the procedure about one hour per woman.
