Subarachnoid block as currently practiced is essentially landmark based blind technique which implies that the current technique as built in complications of multiple attempts, PDPH , spinal haematoma and trauma leading to neurological damage. Predictive difficulty score for spinal anaesthesia was developed to avoid such complications.

Subarachnoid block as currently practiced is essentially landmark based blind technique which implies that the current technique as built in complications of multiple attempts, PDPH , spinal haematoma and trauma leading to neurological damage. Predictive difficulty score for spinal anaesthesia was developed to avoid such complications.
