  1. Hi,

    In regards to TNS. Does it matter what % lidocaine that is used? I know historically its associated with 5% lidocaine, but is the incidence/risks the same with 1% or 2%?

    Great Podcast!

    1. Hi Ravi,

      I’ll let others correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think that is known for sure and so we avoid all lidocaine in spinals.

  2. please consider adding liposomal bupivacaine if not already in another podcast – I have not been through them all. I really do not know much about it but saw a question on my MOCA minute about it

  3. In the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Checklist for Managing Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity they recommended to do not use vasopressin while doing CPR. Anyone knows why?
    I have read in other paper that may cause pulmonary edema, but no references.
    Thank you for this podcast!
    Kind regards,

    1. Vasopressin has taken out of the algorithm because there is not good evidence for any benefit beyond epi.
