Abstract

Three groups of patients who were undergoing suction curettage with a paracervical block were studied for the effect of pain relief using an ancillary analgesic in the form of self-administered methoxyflurane or headphones with stereophonic music. The results indicated that the headphones produced less tension and anxiety and therefore, less complaint of pain than the control group. Methoxyflurane did not show any improvement in pain relief but was at times associated with an amnesic response to the procedure and less post-abortion cramping.
