Nerve Blocks – Precautions

December 22, 2021


The way we perform peripheral nerve blocks is by the use of ultrasound. But before we move into that, we have to take some precautions. First, you’ll receive an intravenous, an IV line, in the hand or arm to receive sedation, to make sure that you’re comfortable. We also need that IV, that access, in case there is a reaction to the local anesthetic. You’ll have monitors applied to check on your oxygen level, your heart rhythm, and your blood pressure.
