Abstract

A review of the literature on spinal anaesthesia is presented. The recorded experiences and opinions of others following experimental and clinical injection have been criticised and commented upon. It has been noted that all writers have observed contraindications. Spinal anaesthesia has been used for almost every operation in Surgery - some under total body anaesthesia. The dangers and difficulties and complications are explained. A personal experience of 1,921 cases of spinal anaesthesia is presented. Hyperbaric solutions were used in all. Everyone considered fit for a general anaesthetic was submitted to spinal anaesthesia. The technique and care of the patient are described. The results are recorded, with details of failures, complications and deaths.
