Brand – Niche Healthcare


An epidural kit is a medical package that contains the necessary components and equipment for performing an epidural anaesthesia procedure. This kit is designed to facilitate the insertion of an epidural needle, the placement of an epidural catheter, and the administration of anaesthesia or analgesia into the epidural space for pain relief during labour, surgery, or other medical situations.

The specific contents of an epidural kit may vary among manufacturers and healthcare facilities, but generally, it includes the following components:

Epidural Needle:

Tuohy Needle: The kit typically includes a Tuohy needle, a specialized epidural needle with a bevelled tip designed for safe insertion into the epidural space.

Epidural Catheter:

Flexible Catheter: An epidural catheter is a flexible tube that is threaded through the epidural needle into the epidural space. It remains in place for continuous administration of medications.


Removable Stylet: A stylet is a rigid rod that may be included with the epidural needle. It provides additional stiffness during needle insertion and is typically removed once the needle is in place, allowing the catheter to be threaded through.

Hub and Connector:

Needle Hub: The hub is the handle or base of the epidural needle that the healthcare provider holds during the procedure.

Catheter Connector: The catheter typically has a connector at its proximal end, allowing it to be connected to an infusion system for the continuous delivery of medication.

Adhesive Dressing:

Sterile Dressing: An adhesive dressing is often included to secure the epidural catheter in place after insertion.

Tape or Securing Device:

Securing Device: Some kits may include tape or a securing device to help anchor the epidural catheter in place on the patient’s back.

Sterile Drape:

Drape: A sterile drape is used to create a sterile field around the insertion site, minimizing the risk of infection.

Gauze and Antiseptic Solution:

Gauze Pads: Sterile gauze pads may be included for cleaning and preparing the skin at the insertion site.

Antiseptic Solution: An antiseptic solution is used to disinfect the skin before the epidural procedure.

Syringes and Medications:

Prefilled Syringes: Some kits may include prefilled syringes containing local anaesthetics or other medications commonly used for epidural procedures.

Instructions and Labels:

Instructions: The kit may include instructions for use, ensuring that healthcare providers follow proper procedures.

Labels: Labels may be included for documentation purposes.

It’s important for healthcare professionals to be trained in the use of epidural kits, follow aseptic techniques, and adhere to institutional protocols to ensure the safety and efficacy of epidural anaesthesia procedures. Additionally, the choice of kit and its contents may depend on the specific requirements of the medical facility and the type of epidural procedure being performed.
