To evaluate the analgesic potential of an neural blockade (Fascia iliaca compartment) with local anaesthetics in patients with hip fracture immediately after arrival in the emergency department.
Condition or disease
Procedure: Fascia Iliaca Compartment Blockade
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.
