Programmed intermittent epidural bolus (PIEB) is an automated method of administering epidural local analgesia with or without opioids. Fixed boluses at scheduled intervals can be utilized as an alternative to a continuous epidural infusion (CEI) alone or as a background administration with a PCEA technique. The purpose of this research project is to provide education regarding PIEB and investigate the benefits and challenges of implementing this new technique into practice.
