Spinal Anesthesia - Technique

Following positioning, the anesthetist will clean your back using anti-septic solution. He may administer a little bit of local anaesthetic to numb the skin at the point where he is going to give the spinal, so that you donít feel the pain due to the spinal needle. The local anesthetic solution is then injected into the spinal space through a long needle. (Usually between L3 - L4, it is subject to change and vary from individual to individual). After successful administration, you will be positioned in the required position and once again all your parameters will be checked by the anesthetist.

spinal anesthesia with.5%heavy sensorcain 4ml.immediatly after deposition of drug patient had intense itching on buttucks & pernium brncospasm,jerks convulsions cynosis comacontrary to usual finding of hypotention and bradycardia patint after intubation had hypertention150to200systolic and pulse 140 to 170/min. I am not sure for the cause. patient expired after 9hours

Itching and bronchospasm point towards an allergic cause. jerks convulsions cyanosis point towards improper or delayed airway control. Was after intubation {hypertention150to200systolic and pulse 140 to 170/min }the surge of intubation? Since the patient is dead, we can just prevent others from having the same fate. Drug injection intravenously is unlikely. Spinal anaes. is generally very safe if performed skillfully with the proper precautions by a trained physician with proper guidance and adequate resources at his/her disposal.
