Effect of airway pressure on lumbar epidural pressure during positive pressure ventilation


, : Effect of airway pressure on lumbar epidural pressure during positive pressure ventilation. Korean Journal of Anesthesiology 61(2): 138-142

The purpose of this study was to measure lumbar epidural pressure (EP) during the insertion of a Tuohy needle under general anesthesia and to evaluate the influence of airway pressure on EP. Lumbar EP was measured directly through a Tuohy needle during intermittent positive pressure ventilation in fifteen patients. Mean and peak EP were recorded after peak inspiratory pressures (PIP) of 0, 15, and 25 cmH(2)O. All measured lumbar EPs were positive, with the pressure increasing during inspiration and decreasing during expiration. Median EP was 6.0 mmHg (interquartile range, 4.0-8.0) at 0 cmH(2)O of PIP, 6.5 mmHg (4.5-8.5) at 15 cmH(2)O, and 8.5 mmHg (6.0-10.5) at 25 cmH(2)O, increasing significantly at 15 cm H(2)O PIP, and further increasing at 25 cmH(2)O (P < 0.001). We demonstrate the influence of increased airway pressure on lumbar EP measured directly through a Tuohy needle. Lumbar EPs were positive, and increasing PIP levels significantly increased lumbar EP.
