Possible Interaction: Epinephrine and Fentanyl



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

CONCLUSION The results suggest that adding epinephrine to a combination of standard intrathecal doses of bupivacaine and fentanyl in combined spinal-epidural analgesia for labor significantly prolongs spinal analgesia.

UNLABELLED We have shown that epinephrine markedly improves the analgesic effect of a thoracic epidural infusion of bupivacaine and fentanyl.
We conclude that epinephrine improves the pain relief and reduces the side effects of a thoracic epidural infusion of ropivacaine and fentanyl after major thoracic or upper abdominal surgery.

Our data also show that the total required dose of epidural, but not IV, fentanyl is reduced by very small dose epidural bupivacaine and epinephrine (Group I versus Group IV, P < 0.02 and Group II vs Group III, not significant).

BACKGROUND The highly lipid-soluble opioids, fentanyl and sufentanil, frequently are used in combination with local anesthetic agents and/or epinephrine to provide postoperative epidural analgesia.
Anesthesiology  •  1993  |  View Paper
The authors conclude that the addition of epinephrine 3.33 micrograms/ml significantly increases the duration of analgesia obtained from 0.25% bupivacaine with 5 micrograms/ml fentanyl.

The results suggest that both fentanyl and epinephrine improve intraoperative analgesia.

The addition of epinephrine to solutions containing fentanyl and bupivacaine for epidural infusion has been shown to improve the quality of analgesia.
Anaesthesia  •  2004  |  View Paper
The addition of 25 micrograms epinephrine to the fentanyl (100 micrograms) did not potentiate the speed of onset but did significantly prolong the duration of action of the second dose.
The results indicate a clinical advantage of prolonging the duration of action of fentanyl for post-Caesarean Section analgesia with the addition of epinephrine , but the cumbersome and time-consuming nature of a double-bolus technique limits its clinical value.

Epinephrine had no effect on the terminal elimination half-life of morphine in the epidural space, but it decreased that of fentanyl and sufentanil.

This indicates that fentanyl has less suppressing action on the secretion of stress hormones, including epinephrine , under similarly stressful conditions as halothane anesthesia.
