Threshold current for an insulated epidural needle in pediatric patients.

Abstract

We designed this study to determine the threshold current for nerve stimulation of an insulated needle in the epidural space. The intended dermatome was identified using the bony landmarks of the spine. An 18-gauge insulated Tuohy needle was inserted perpendicularly to the skin and advanced until "loss of resistance" was felt. A nerve stimulator was then… (More)
