Two modes of air injection measurement (AIM) and accurate dual-way measurement (ADM) were proposed, where the AIM mode is desired to significantly reduce the measurement time and the ADM mode is desired not only to reduce the measurement time but also to improve the measurement consistence and precision which can be evaluated in terms of statistical standard deviation.
The concept of "half-the-air" to keep injection pressure below 15 psi derives from the reliability of compressed air injection technique [22, 23], and the facility-independent half-the-air setting helps popularize injection pressure monitoring in clinical practice by the advantages of low cost, easy assembling, and incorporating a test syringe (ensuring the total mass of local anesthetic to be delivered) and a long (200 cm) extension tube (facilitating the operation for the assistant, thus physical ergonomics) with a low dead space (1.4 mL) [9].
