Epidural Anesthesia – Techniques

December 23, 2021


So people ask about the different types of epidurals. There are two types, and it depends on the hospital and the practice to determine which one you’re getting. You should ask your care provider at the hospital about their preferred practice. There are single epidurals and there are combined epidural spinals, what is called a CSE. So a CSE is a technique most commonly done for obstetrics, mothers that are delivering babies, and it’s a hybrid technique where a local anesthetic is injected in the epidural space. And another part of local anesthetic is injected right into around the spinal cord. Then we also leave a catheter to manage your pain control. For many surgeries, epidurals can be used as the main anesthesia technique, or, again, can be used in combination with general anesthesia.
