in Koreans: A Study Using Magnetic Resonance Imaging," Anaesthesia, vol.
The technician noted down the name of the patient and the drug given which was not revealed to the anaesthesiologist administering the caudal block
and monitoring the patient.
Patients were administered caudal block
and drug administered according to the study group.
The double blind study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of ketamine co-administered with bupivacaine in caudal block
for providing postoperative analgesia in paediatric patients.
The time between the caudal block
and administration of the first rescue analgesic drug was noted.
The caudal block
was performed by an experienced anaesthetist using a 23 gauge short-bevel needle under aseptic conditions.
demonstrated that ropivacaine 0.2% (2 mg/mL) for caudal block
provide satisfactory postoperative pain relief after inguinal surgery in 4-12 years' children.
Heart rate was very much stable in GA with caudal block
DISCUSSION: Motor block resulting from caudal block
is distressing to children and delays hospital discharge.
Under strict aseptic precautions, with a 22 G hypodermic needle single shot caudal block
was performed, by an anaesthesiologist blinded to the drug which was to be administered to the epidural space.
(2) Unfortunately motor blockade resulting from caudal block
may be a Cause of distress in post-operative period and may lead to delayed hospital discharge.
60 80.2 The variation in pulse rate after the caudal block
is shown in above table.
