COMPARISON OF MOTOR BLOCKADE AND COMPLICATION OF EPIDURALLY ADMINISTERED BUPIVACAINE - FENTANYL COMBINATION AS INTERMITTENT AND CONTINUOUS INFUSION IN PATIENTS WITH REST PAIN- CHRONIC LIMB ISCHEMIA

Dr. P. Deepthi, Dr. C. Pranab Nirmal

Abstract


This  study comparing the  motor blockade and complication of  intermittent  doses  and continuous infusion of 0.125%  Bupivacaine  with  .The  patients included in our study in both groups  the intermittent bolus and  the continuous infusion did not have motor blockade which enabled them to be ambulant and do their daily activities. Moreover the disposable continuous infusion pumps were handy enough to be carried. The wide swings in hemodynamics like blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate were not encountered in the continuous infusion group and stability was maintained throughout.
