I have started using Ropivacain for Labour Analgesia for some time. I am still trying to come to a proper dosage, concentration and combination.
Though the literature( Published by manufacturer) says that 0.2 % along with 2mcg of Fentanyl is the best combination, we are not happy with it.
We have tried out many permitation and combination, and now we are giving 0.12% with Fent 1 mcg/ml (15 ml each dose)
This is the best combination so far.
But the patient gets no feel of contraction at all.
Shall I go a bit lowers still?
It acts nicely for almost 150 mins per dose.
would like to learn more from you all.
Please guide us.
