Comparison of Safety And Efficacy of Neuraxial Anesthesia, Palpation Versus Ultrasound
Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
The purpose of this study is to determine whether use of the ultrasound to locate the epidural space and assist with performing neuraxial anesthesia will decrease numbers of the attempts required for successful placement of epidural catheter.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized

|Official Title:||Comparison of Safety And Efficacy of Neyraxial Anesthesia,Palpation Versus Ultrasound|
- Number of epidural attempts made to succeed for placing epidural needle and catheter in epidural space [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Each attempt at placing epidural needle in epidural space will be recorded. Total number of attempts will be recorded
- patient satisfaction as measured by VAS (0=not satisfied, 10 = most satisfied) [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||April 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||April 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: ultrasound ,without ultrasound
ultrasound group will be passed the neuraxial anesthesia with ultrasound,the secoud group will be passed the neuraxial anesthesia without ultrasound .
Device: ultrasound probe
we will compare two technique of neuraxial anesthesia;one group will be passed neuraxial anesthesia with the intervention the ultrasound and the other group without the intervention of the ultrasound.
It is known that ultrasound can be useful to assist placement of epidural analgesia among pregnant women.extenseve research on the usefulness of ultrasound imaging to facilitate the placement of neuraxial anesthesia in pregnant have been done.The potential advantages of successful placement among non-pregnant patients include increases the safety and comfort.
In our study all patients schedueld to receive an nueraxial anesthesia for non-obstetric surgery will be included.The investigator will request permission from the Helsinki committee of hadassah university hospital.Patients will be requesting for surgery and will be randomized to one of two study groups.One group will be passed neuraxial anesthesia on the standart technique and the secound group will be passed neuraxial anesthesia with the help of ultrasound.
