  • Can three epidurals be a problem?

    Another epidural won’t be a problem, assuming nothing has changed with your back (surgery, injury, etc). A third pregnancy however does carry added risk but from the obstetrical side-higher incidence of complications with the labor and the birth. The good news is, with each pregnancy the time you are in labor till you deliver usually gets shorter! READ MORE

  • Why was my son given anesthesia for a CT scan?

    To get good images during a CT scan (special x-ray pictures taken in succession that are grouped together to generate multiple highly detailed pictures inside the body) regardless of age, the patient must hold very still for the duration of the scan (~15-30 minutes). Obviously asking a 3y to hold still for half an hour would be nearly impossible, hence we often get asked to put a child to sleep for CT and MRI scans. READ MORE

  • If my anesthesia is delivered in the back, can its traces mix in the spinal fluid?

    Most medications we use in spinals are slowly absorbed back into your blood stream and then metabolized, gone after several hours. The one thing that can hang around are actual microscopic metal filings from the spinal needle, but to date there is no evidence that these tiny particles cause any long term problems. READ MORE

  • Can I feel drowsy a week after my anesthesia was delivered?

    The drugs we use for anesthesia have half lives that measure in minutes or hours (a half life is the time it takes for the concentration in your blood to drop by half, with a significant drop in effect at one half life), not days. Unless you are still taking long acting opioids such as methadone, the answer is no, nothing during your D/C is still around. READ MORE
