|Study Start Date :||July 2012|
|Primary Completion Date :||July 2013|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2015|
Experimental: Nerve stimulator
Patients in this group will have their nerve blocks assessed with a common nerve stimulator (Stimuplex HNS 12, B.Braun, Germany).
Device: Nerve stimulator assessment
Activity of nerve(s) to be blocked will be assessed with the Stimuplex HNS 12 nerve stimulator before and after administration of local anesthetic.
Active Comparator: Neurometer
Patients in this group will have their nerve block assessed using the Neurometer.
Device: Neurometer assessment
Activity of nerve(s) to be blocked will be assessed with the Neurometer before and after administration of local anesthetic.
- Accuracy of nerve activity measurement. [ Time Frame: During nerve stimulation (approximately 30 seconds for each stimulation test) ]Testing whether a common nerve stimulator device detects nerve activity as accurately and consistently as the Neurometer.
