Accidental spinal potassium chloride injection successfully treated with spinal lavage [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
We describe the management of a 62-year-old man who developed severe pain, cramps, paraplegia and pulmonary oedema after the accidental administration of potassium chloride into the subarachnoid space. In addition to supportive treatment, we performed cerebrospinal fluid lavage with saline 0.9%. The patient recovered well without any permanent injury. © 2013 The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland.
