The purpose of this study was to review the study design, participants, intervention and its outcomes of studies for post-dura puncture headache using systematic review. Total 4234 studies were searched from 1980 to 2016 years,15 studies were included in final. Total 5239 patients were participated in studies, and 10 RCTs studies and 5 observational studies were included. The findings showed that experimental studies used the 24hr bedrest intervention as a control group for comparing the prevalence of headache with the early ambulation intervention group. The prevalence of headache in ambulation group was lower than 24hr bedrest group (except 2 studies). The high risk methodological bias should be considered when understandings the research findings. Based on this study, meta-analysis study for investigating the proper period of time for bedrest should be performed in further study.
