Dodgy epidural

If topping up epidural for c-section (cat 2 so time available) then…
– if it just does not work at all.  Remove and do full dose spinal, with thoracic wedge to prevent rostral spread
– low height*/patchy. Remove and do CSE with 1-1.5ml in spinal

*try patient on left lateral with trendelenburg
