In 108 spinal anesthetic cases, 2.36 ml of each of five 0.5% tetracaine solutions, either with distilled water (DW), normal saline (NS) or different concentrations of dextrose (2.5%-2.5 G, 5%-5 G, 10%-10 G) was injected intrathecally at the L2/3 or L3/4 interspace. The specific gravity and osmotic pressure of these solutions and cerebrospinal fluid were… (More)
