The use of electro-analgesia in obstetrics and gynecology. A survey by invitation.


The newly-developed method of electroanalgesia is based on the employment of low-intensity impulse currents with extended frequency range and electrode application in the region of the forehead and mastoid processes. Electro-analgesia has been successfully used in preparing the pregnant woman for labour, in controlling abnormal uterine contractility, in preventing and treating toxaemia of pregnancy. It produces favourable effects on the mother and the fetus. Electro-analgesia has also been successfully used in labour anaesthesia, and as part of a combined method of general anaesthesia in 200 obstetrical and gynaecologic operations and the postoperative period.
