I would like to know how important is to detect in real time the epidural space ( by developing new device) or  LOR is 100% satisfied technique?

hi,
  any blind technique can't be 100% accurate like LOR technique.ultrasound guided detection of epidural space will be better option.with regards

There are times when we have felt that it will be tough to locate the epidural space. Specially in very old patient where u get same feel all over. And your saline also goes smoothly even when you are no where near space.
We have used C -arm with dye to confirm our position before injecting our drugs. This makes it fullproof, specially when you think that Epidural is the only option, and GA is not right for the patient.
