Ultrasound guided nerve blocks have become the standard when performing regional nerve blocks in anesthesia due to improved safety and efficacy of the procedure (1).
Following IRB approval, 134 eligible patients were enrolled and randomized into two groups;
134 patients enrolled in this trial; 67 in each group
Average block time in the Infiniti Plus™ group decreased by 33%.
This difference maybe more apparent in clinicians doing this block less often or by residents since our team was very experienced and working in a large volume hospital.
