Abstract

Age increases the level of analgesia after epidural ropivacaine and is associated with a more pronounced decrease in arterial pressure. A colloid preload mildly increases haemodynamics, but this insufficiently prevents younger and elderly patients from a decrease in Qh after lumbar epidural anaesthesia.
