UNLABELLED We sought to determine the plasma concentrations of bupivacaine and its main metabolite after continuous fascia iliaca compartment (FIC) block in children. Twenty children (9.9 +/- 4 yr, 38 +/- 19 kg) received a continuous FIC block for either postoperative analgesia (n = 16) or femoral shaft fracture (n = 4). A bolus dose of 0.25% bupivacaine (1.56 +/- 0.3 mg/kg) with epinephrine was followed by a continuous administration of 0.1% bupivacaine (0.135 +/- 0.03 mg. kg(-)(1). h(-)(1… CONTINUE READING
