The relation between skin temperature increase and sensory block height in spinal anaesthesia using infrared thermography.


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the feasibility of determining the extent of sympathetic blockade by skin temperature measurement with infrared thermography and relate the cranial extent of the temperature increase to that of the sensory block after spinal anaesthesia. METHODS Before and 5, 10 and 20 min after the administration of spinal… (More)
