Epidural and spinal anaesthesia are generally two kinds of anesthesia in which a local anesthesia is injected into the spinal cord as well the nerve roots. Soon after administering the anesthesia, the pain from the entire region of the body is blocked. No matter whether it is the belly, hips, legs, or pelvis, the anesthesia works well everywhere. Epidural and spinal anesthesia treatment is generally used to perform surgery of the lower belly and legs.
Similarly, epidural anesthesia is mostly used during child delivery. However, it also finds usage in controlling pain after performing major surgery to the belly or chest. Epidural anesthesia is administered by inserting a hollow needle and a small, flexible catheter into the space between the spinal column and outer membrane of the spinal cord (epidural space) in lower back. The point of insertion is numbed with a local anesthetic.
The needle is inserted and removed soon after the catheter has passed through it. While the catheter remains in place, the anesthetic medicine is injected into the catheter to numb the body. Spinal anesthesia is also administered the same way. However, the needle used is much smaller.
Spinal anaesthesia comes with a side effect that is headache. However, it can be easily treated. Meanwhile, epidural anaesthesia causes fewer headaches. The spinal headache is also called postural puncture headache.
