Background and Aims:

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of using a ‘Shadow Board’ in the preparation of spinal anaesthesia on the preparation and duration of application of spinal anaesthesia.

Methods:

Evaluation was made of a total of 40 cases of caesarean section operation applied with spinal anaesthesia. In 20 cases, the ‘Shadow Board’ was used as a visual template. The same anaesthesia technique prepared in a traditional method was applied to the other 20 cases. Duration of anaesthesia application was calculated as the time from the needle entry to the skin for local anaesthesia to the time of removal of the spinal needle from the skin. For all cases in both groups, the time of preparation and the duration of application was recorded.  Data were analysed with the Pearson Chi-square test.

Results:

The spinal anaesthesia preparation and applicaton time was shorter and complete in the group applied with the ‘Shadow Board’ method compared with the traditional method group. The mean preparation time of the spinal anaesthesia was 18.30 secs with the ‘Shadow Board’  method and 44.50 secs with the traditional method and the difference was determined to be statistically significant (p<0.05).The mean duration of application of the spinal anaesthesia was 51.85 secs with the ‘Shadow Board’  method and 54.05 secs with the traditional method, 

Conclusions:

With the use of ‘lean’ materials such as the ‘Shadow Board’, deficiencies associated with forgetfulness or lack of knowledge in the preparation period of various types of anaesthesia can be eliminated.
