BACKGROUND When a test is required to detect a possible intrathecal catheter, many would seek to use the same local anaesthetic as that used for epidural analgesia. The rapid onset of inappropriate motor block after a local anaesthetic administered epidurally implies intrathecal spread. Because of claims of greater sensory-motor separation, or because of reduced potency compared with bupivacaine, the efficacy of the new local anaesthetics in intrathecal testing has been questioned. The aim of… CONTINUE READING
