Abstract
Analgetic effect of small amount of morphine on spinal and epidural anesthesia was investigated. Patients who received morphine showed marked analgetic effect compared to control group. It was found that the amount of morphine needed was larger for epidural anesthesia than for spinal anesthesia, the former being more than 2mg, and the latter less than 0.5mg. Spinal and epidural morhphine caused complications on several occasions: pruritis, respiratory depression with pinpoint pupil and urinary retention in spinal anesthesia, and nauses and pruritis in epidural anesthesia.
