Ultrasound guided infraclavicular block
Procedure: Ultrasound Guided Infraclavicular Nerve Block
Use of Ultrasound to help guide needle placement and local anesthetic injection during infraclavicular nerve block.
Active Comparator: Dual Endpoint Nerve Stimulator
Nerve stimulator guided dual endpoint infraclavicular block
Procedure: Dual-Endpoint nerve stimulation
Use of dual-endpoint nerve stimulation to guide needle placement and local anesthetic injection during infraclavicular nerve block.
- To compare ultrasound-guided infraclavicular block with conventional dual-endpoint nerve stimulator guided infraclavicular block with regards to block success, ease of nerve localization, speed of onset, duration of block and complications.
