* If an individual has a minty smell to their breath all day long, it may mean that they are consuming mouthwash on a regular basis. By itself though, this is not enough to prove that an individual is partaking in this dangerous activity and other proof must be found before confronting them about it.
* Keep a look out for large number of empty mouthwash bottles which have been thrown away. While many alcoholics will go to great lengths to hide their addiction, sometimes they may get sloppy, especially after they have consumed a great deal.
* If there is any doubt, purchase some non-alcoholic mouthwash instead and see if any complaints are raised. This type of mouthwash has been shown to be safer anyway while still providing the same oral hygiene benefits.
The caudal approach to the epidural space involves the use of a Tuohy needle, an intravenous catheter, or a hypodermic needle to puncture the sacrococcygeal membrane . Injecting local anaesthetic at this level can result in analgesia and/or anaesthesia of the perineum and groin areas. The caudal epidural technique is often used in infants and children undergoing surgery involving the groin, pelvis or lower extremities. In this population, caudal epidural analgesia is usually combined with general anaesthesia since most children do not tolerate surgery when regional anaesthesia is employed as the sole modality.
