  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
