While debating whether or not to give the next traumatic brain injury patient tranexamic acid, will we remember to meticulously control the basics?

My anecdotal experience is that continuous infusions work well with nerve blocks but programmed intermittent boluses are necessary for fascial plane blocks.

Agreed. Main caution is to avoid inserting needle too deep!

I think the sacral plexus block is an excellent advanced nerve block. To be honest, I’ve done quite a few of these, and the in-plane technique with a curvilinear probe is technically straightforward. Great to see exploring indications for this technique. 👍

I’ve yet to see QL blocks provide a sensory block for the upper midline. I’d go with bilateral Rectus sheath blocks......but these will be more difficult postop with the stoma/drain. Some would say the L.A could leak out of the sheath...but does this matter?

I’d agree. We do have quantitative evidence of phrenic nerve palsy, but this does not often seem to translate to clinically important outcomes... this is a really valuable avenue for future research. See:

Exactly. 99% of anaesthesiologists don’t care about anatomical minutiae of novel nerve block approaches. They want a small number of reliable, versatile blocks they can learn easily, perform on their patients regularly, & make a difference to patient care.

I agree. I think we hugely overestimate the number of patients who can’t tolerate 5mls of local anaesthetic at C5-C6.

This is why we need to remove the ‘postcode lottery’ of regional anaesthesia availability, and train everyone in a small number of basic high value blocks.
