A randomised study comparing the extent of block produced by spinal column height and body weight-based formulae for paediatric caudal analgesia.


Height and weight-based formulae are used for calculation of dose of medications for caudal analgesia but these have not been compared. We compared spinal column height-based Spiegel and weight-based Takasaki and Armitage formulae for achieving maximum height of sensory neuraxial block after caudal epidural analgesia in paediatric patients.
