Reference work entry


One generally has to distinguish between surface anesthesia, infiltration anesthesia, and conduction anesthesia (Fromherz 1922; Schaumann 1938; Camougis and Takman 1971). Special local tolerance tests have been developed for each of these applications including peridural and intrathecal injections.
