Continuous Lumbar Epidural Anesthetic

Continuous lumbar epidural anesthetic is effective and versatile, but requires skilled providers.

This video was produced by the Brookside Associates in 2003 to assist in orienting medical students to this procedure.

Shown are the appropriate techniques of patient preparation and draping, use of local anesthetic, safe insertion of a Tuohy needle, and threading of an epidural catheter.

The video may be freely downloaded.
