Symposium (benefits and risks of using epidural anesthesia during childbirth)
The Department of Anesthesia Techniques at the Medical Technical Institute/ Baghdad organized a scientific symposium entitled (Benefits and risks of using epidural anesthesia during childbirth) for the definition of epidural anesthesia and the most important benefits and risks expected. The symposium included regional anesthesia, including anesthesia, epidural anesthesia, and neuropathy. The lecture focused on raising awareness of pregnant women and encouraging them to have a normal child, and to stay away from Caesarean sections only when absolutely necessary or to resort to painless delivery achieved by epidural anesthesia. The lecture recommended holding awareness symposiums for pregnant women through the media and scientific symposiums or through the educational guidance unit and the midwifery and obstetrics department of the Institute.
