PMID:  14633565     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: We report a case of prolonged motor and sensory block after labor analgesia using "loss of resistance to air" technique. The presence of epidural air on tomography resulted in the patient undergoing hyperbaric therapy. The use of loss of resistance to air technique complicated the differential diagnosis of prolonged sensory and motor block.
