Neuraxial Anesthesia Charting Clinical Trial
Tracking Attempts of CSE, Epidural and Spinal Insertions (TRACES)
The goal of this study is to compare observed neuraxial (Epidural, spinal, combined spinal-epidural) insertion attempts with actual documented attempts in anesthesia providers (staff, residents and fellows) at one maternal hospital. Trained research staff will document the number of neuraxial attempts before the operation, and compare this with the attempts recorded in the patient's chart. The definition of a neuraxial attempt will be determined before the study begins through a thorough literature review.
