  • We have studied the effect of glucose concentration on the spread of tetracaine spinal anesthesia in 40 parturient patients. Forty women undergoing cesarean section received a subarachnoid injection of tetracaine 8 mg dissolved in either 5% or 10% glucose solution. The maximum cephalad spread of analgesia [median (range)] was higher with 10% glucose [T3 (T4-C8)] than with 5% glucose [T4 (T5.5-T2)]. The time from the spinal injection to the maximum spread of analgesia (mean ± SD) was… CONTINUE READING
