Is anyone out there using (or have used) Ropivacaine for caudal blocks? Seems there less risk of cardiotoxicity and less motor blockade compared to similar dosing/concentrations of Marcaine.

Traditionally, we've been using 0.25% Marcaine with Epi 1:200,000 1 ml/kg for regions higher than circumcision. We can probably get away with using 0.5 ml/kg for circs, though.
