It helps in increasing the epidural injection efficiency. After cleaning the lower back, an epidural drug is injected into the epidural space which is between the membrane and vertebrae covering the spinal cord. Once it is done, the doctor will wait till the drug numbs the pain which usually takes around 10-30 minutes. Here are some of the epidural types which are given depending on the condition:

  • Epidural block- analgesics and anaesthetics combination which is given through a tiny tube in the lower back.
  • Spinal block- it is a single shot which helps in relieving the pain easily and is inserted into the spinal cord directly. This type is used in C- section delivery.
