Plasma concentrations of lignocaine after thoracic paravertebral blockade in infants and children.

Abstract

Plasma concentrations of lignocaine were determined in six ASA 1 children treated with thoracic paravertebral blockade. Peak concentrations ranged between 1.7 and 3.0 micrograms.ml-1 after a bolus injection of lignocaine 0.5 ml.kg-1 (lignocaine 10 mg.ml-1 with adrenaline 5 micrograms.ml-1) and peak plasma concentrations were reached 15-30 min after… (More)
