Cost. Respiratory disease. few adverse effects on the respiratory system as long as unduly high blocks are avoided. Patent airway.. Diabetic patients. There is little risk of unrecognised hypoglycaemia in an awake patient. Diabetic patients can usually return to their normal food and insulin regime soon after surgery as they experience less sedation, nausea and vomiting. Muscle relaxation.. Blood loss less Visceral tone. The bowel is contracted during spinal anaesthesia and sphincters are relaxed although peristalsis continues. Normal gut function rapidly returns following surgery. Coagulation. Post-operative deep vein thromboses and pulmonary emboli are less common following spinal anaesthesia 5/3/2010 neeraj 20

Slide 21: 

This technique is very useful in patients having an irritable airway (bronchial asthma or allergic bronchitis), anatomical abnormalities which make endotracheal intubation very difficult (micrognathia), borderline hypertensives where administration of general anaesthesia or endotracheal intubation can further elevate the blood pressure, procedures in geriatric patients. technique of choice for diabetic patients. 5/3/2010 neeraj 21

Abdominal & vaginal hysterectomies Caesarean sections Hernia (inguinal or epigastric) Piles fistulae & fissures orthopaedic surgeries on the pelvis, femur, tibia and the ankle nephrectomy cholecystectomy trauma surgery on the lower limbs, especially if the patient is full-stomach Open tubectomies Transurethral resection of the prostate 5/3/2010 neeraj 22

anaphylaxis Backach Headach (PDPH) Urinary retention Spinal shock. Cauda equina injury Hypothermia Meningitis Broken needle Bleeding resulting in haematoma, with or without subsequent neurological sequelae due to compression of the spinal nerves Infection: immediate within six hours of the spinal anaesthetic manifesting as meningism or meningitis or late, at the site of injection, in the form of pus discharge, due to improper sterilization of the LP set. 5/3/2010 neeraj 28

Epidural Anaesthesia : 

Epidural Anaesthesia

Slide 30: 

Injection of local anesthetic in to the epidural space at any level of the spinal column Types- 5/3/2010 neeraj 30

Slide 31: 

Fidel Pages first used epidural anaesthesia in humans in 1921. In 1945 Tuohy introduced the needle which is still most commonly used for epidural anaesthesia 5/3/2010 neeraj 31

Indications (general) : 

Indications (general) anaesthetic for procedures involving the lower limbs, pelvis, perineum and lower abdomen postoperative analgesia maintain continuous anaesthesia after placement of an epidural catheter 5/3/2010 neeraj 32

Indication (specific) : 

Indication (specific) Hip and knee surgery Vascular reconstruction of the lower limbs Amputation Obstetrics Low concentration local anaesthetics, opioids, or combinations of both Thoracic trauma with rib or sternum fractures 5/3/2010 neeraj 33

Disadvantages: : 

Disadvantages: Technically complex Chances of block failure or patchy block High incidence of epidural hematoma Total spinal “spinal headache” 5/3/2010 neeraj 34

Slide 35: 

Type of epidural block Mainly used in children for perianal surgeries, genital surgeries and for providing pain relief. 5/3/2010 neeraj 35

Slide 36: 

Injection of local anesthetic intravenously for anesthesia of an extremity 5/3/2010 neeraj 36

Slide 37: 

Uses any surgical procedure on an extremity Advantages: technically simple, minimal equipment, rapid onset Disadvantages: duration limited by tolerance of tourniquet pain, toxicity 5/3/2010 neeraj 37

Peripheral nerve & plexus blocks : 

Peripheral nerve & plexus blocks

Peripheral nerve & plexus block : 

Peripheral nerve & plexus block Injecting local anesthetic near the course of a named nerve Uses: Surgical procedures in the distribution of the blocked nerve Advantages: relatively small dose of local anesthetic to cover large area; rapid onset Disadvantages: technical complexity, neuropathy 5/3/2010 neeraj 39

Plexus Blockade : 

Plexus Blockade Injection of local anesthetic adjacent to a plexus, e.g cervical, brachial or lumbar plexus Uses : surgical anesthesia or post-operative analgesia in the distribution of the plexus Advantages: large area of anesthesia with relatively large dose of agent Disadvantages: technically complex, potential for toxicity and neuropathy.
