To investigate the significance of applying continuous epidural anaesthesia in painless delivery anaesthesia, 125 cases of full-term delivery parturients who were admitted to the hospital's Obstetrics Department between November 2015 and June 2016 were selected and randomly grouped. Sixty four cases who opted for continuous epidural anaesthesia during delivery were divided into Group I, 61 cases not opted for analgesia were divided into Group II and results of delivery and the delivery course were compared between the two groups. There were 3 caesarean deliveries (4.69 %) of 64 cases in Group I, 18 (29.51 %) of 61 cases in Group II (p<0.05) and the first and second stages of labor in Group I were shorter than those in Group II (p<0.05). The technique of continuous epidural anaesthesia in parturient delivery is helpful to improve the quality of anaesthesia and shorten the delivery course, which shall be prioritized.
