GAO Min-ying, et al (Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital of Dongming County,Dongming 274500, China)
Objective To assess the blocking levels of epidural anesthesia by measuring vanishment of reflection. Methods 60 ASAⅠ～Ⅱ infants aged 1～3 years undergoing operation on lower abdomen, lower limbs and feet have heen performed epidural anesthesia (EA) using 0.8%～1.2% Lidocaine (including 5ug/ml adrenaline) after ketamine IM.15 minutes after EA, measuring blocking levels by vanishment of reflection or acupuncture way.Results The blocking levels could be measured accurately in all infants by vanishment of reflection and in 20 cases by acupuncture way (P0.01). In 20 infants, blocking levels was similar between the two means ((P0.05). Conclusion The epidural blocking levels can be determined by venishment of reflection in infants with ketamine anesthesia.
