Abstract

Regional anaesthesia, from plexus blocks to skin infiltration, can be used to provide analgesia for most surgery.


Cognisance must be taken of the following when choosing the dose of local anaesthetic agent:
  • potency and toxicity of the drugs
  • the site of injection
  • the volume needed for the block
  • the desired characteristics of the block (motor or sensory block)
  • the patient's physiology.
