Epidural analgesia is a central nerve block technique in which a local anaesthesia is injected close to the nerves that carry pain sensations. It is given in the epidural space in the back when the patient is about 3 cm dilated to reduce the pain of labor contractions.
It is usually removed after the Episiotomy has been sutured.
