Are there any good techniques to reduce false loss of resistance while doing Cervical epidurals. I did a cervcial ESI recently and pt started having fasle loss of resistance after the needle is placed about 3cm deep from the skin. I knew that I am not in the epidural space by taking Oblique and lateral views. When I was in the epidural space about 6cm from the skin, I was unable to steer the Arrow Flex tip plus catheter in to the epidural space. I pulled the catheter out and injected epidural which showed good spread.
