Efficacy and Satisfaction With Remifentanil Analgesia in Parturients During the Childbirth


Retrospective observational study to determine the efficacy of remifentanil during the delivery. Authors will search the data in period between 2010 and 2014 in cohort of 100 parturients and obtain data of analgesic efficacy (VAS score after remifentanil analgesia induction) and parturients satisfaction with the method.

Detailed Description

In retrospective observational study will authors search the documentation of parturients. The cohort size is estimated to 100 subjects, in period between 2010-2014. Excluded will be all patients who did not signed the informed consent for processing with their medical data.The main aim is to evaluate the efficacy of the remifentanil analgesia in parturients in the first phase of delivery. The analgesic efficacy will be evaluated by the change in VAS (visual analogue scale) score after induction of remifentanil analgesia Satisfaction will be evaluated by the questionary.


  • Drug: remifentanil
    • Remifentanil analgesia during delivery

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Parturients with remifentanil analgesia
    • Parturients after induction of remifentanyl analgesia during the delivery

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Efficacy of remifentanyl analgesia during the delivery
    • Time Frame: VAS score before the induction of remifentanyl infusion and 1hour after initiation of remifentanil analgesia during the first phase of delivery
    • To evaluate the efficacy of remifentanil analgesia during the first phase of delivery in parturients by observing changes in VAS score

Secondary Measures

  • Patient satisfaction with analgetic method
    • Time Frame: Before initiation of anagetic method (first phase of delivery) and 1hour after childbirth
    • Patients will fill the questionaire to obtain their opinion on the remifentanil analgesia
