Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain relief within 3 hours

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Nausea
  • Pain on transfer
  • Discomfort with block placement

Estimated Enrollment: 48
Study Start Date: May 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2006
Detailed Description:

Hip fracture patients have severe pain in the acute phase. Traditional analgesic treatment have consisted of intramuscular morphine with its associated side effects. The trial evaluates the Fascia iliaca compartment compared to regular opioid pain therapy in hip fracture patinets immediately after arrival at the emergency department.
