Byung Ho Lee, Joo Young Choi
Department of Anesthesiology, Catholic Medical College, Seoul, Korea.
A case of a congenital diaphragmatic hernia was operated upon at our hospital employing a combination of light general anesthesia and epidural block, with effective results and post-operative analgesia. Cases with congenital anomalies, prematurity and neonatal respiratory distress syndrome(RDS) are at great risk during general anesthesia. To insure a good ariway and to prevent aspiration of stomach contents, tracheal intubation was done and light general anesthesia(N2-O2) administered. Unver this state candal block was done. By this method, good abdominal relaxation was obtained and the amount of inhalation anesthetics could be reduced. The author believe that in this group of patients, epidural block in combination with light general anesthesia is a good and safe method of administering anesthesia.
