Dr Paul Kessler - Euroanaesthesia 2018 - Awake, Sedated or Anaesthetised for Regional Anaesthesia Block Placements

Awake, Sedated or Anaesthetised for Regional Anaesthesia Block Placements

Prof. Kessler began by explaining that the topic of how regional anaesthesia should be performed has always been an intense and somewhat emotional discussion. Should it be performed in awake, sedated and/or anaesthetised patients? He asked the audience how many of them routinely perform peripheral nerve blocks in the anaesthetised patient; around 20% said yes.
