We have compared effects of epidural analgesia in labour in two groups containing 35 primiparous each and in two groups containing 35 multiparous each. We have administered either bupivacaine or bupivacaine with fentanyl. We have compared duration of the 1-st and the 2-nd stage labour, efficiency of analgesia, quantity of administered bupivacaine, method of delivery and condition of the newborn. This investigation has shown that use of 0.25% bupivacaine with fentanyl requires less quantity of bupivacaine in both groups of primiparous and multiparous. The addition of fentanyl to 0.25% bupivacaine can be beneficial alternative of epidural analgesia in labour.
