May G, Bartram T. The use of intrapleural anaesthetic to reduce the pain of chest drain insertion. Emerg Med J 2007;24:300–1.
This Best Evidence Topic Report contained some typographical errors. The dose of local anaesthetic in table 4 (Patient Group column) should be 0.5% bupivacaine with adrenaline (not 0.5% adrenaline). In the Comment(s) section of the text, the suggested repeat doses of local anaesthetic should be given at 8, not 4, hourly intervals.
