Circulatory stability and plasma lidocaine levels during continuous and intermittent thoracic epidural analgesia


Circulatory stability and plasma levels of lidocaine were investigated in 20 patients who received thoracic epidural analgesia with plain lidocaine during elective abdominal surgery under general anesthesia. In one group, bolus injection of 8 ml of 2% lidocaine was followed by volumetric continuous pump-driven infusion (CPI) of 8 ml of 1.5% lidocaine per… (More)
