Clinical Trial Summary

The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of intrathecal hydromorphone on the duration of labor analgesia and the incidence of epidural-associated temperature increase in laboring parturients. We hypothesize that intrathecal administration of longer-acting hydromorphone will:

1. Prolong the duration and improve the quality of analgesia in labor, and

2. Decrease the incidence of epidural-associated temperature increase in labor.
