Simplified Spinal Anesthesia

Here is handout that I used to give to residents who were learning spinal anesthesia years ago.  I recently ran into one of those residents who is now an attending.  She told me that she uses that handout in teaching her residents today.  She was kind enough to fax me a copy of it, as I had long ago forgotten about it.  The basics still apply but the drugs we use today are somewhat different than I used back then.  Here it is for what it is worth.
