  • The differential levels of sensory blockade of pinprick, cold, and touch were monitored throughout the course of spinal anesthesia administered to 50 patients to determine variations in the degree of spread during onset, plateau, and regression, and to establish the effects of epinephrine and the effect of posture during injection. A significant difference was observed between the dermatomal level of sensory loss of touch and the dermatomal level of loss of either pinprick or cold during onset… CONTINUE READING
