2-14). Needle entry is from behind the sternocleidomastoid muscle, halfway from the clavicle to the mastoid (Fig. 2-15). Ultrasound imaging can also be used (see Fig. 2-11). This is generally in the direction of the midpoint of the ipsilateral clavicle. The phrenic nerve may be encountered, which causes unmistakable abdominal twitches 32 REGIONAL BLOCKS AND ANATOMY FOR ORTHOPEDIC ANESTHESIA FIGURE 2-14 The index and middle ﬁngers of the nonoperative hand palpate the groove between the anterior and middle scalene muscles, and the ﬁngers are split such that the index ﬁnger applies traction to the skin and the middle ﬁnger remains in the groove between the two scalene muscles.
This is because the block is performed at the level of the plexus trunks, where the entire sensory, motor, and sympathetic innervation of the upper arm is carried in just three nerve structures conﬁned to a small space between the ﬁrst rib and the clavicle in the cephalocaudal axis, and the anterior and middle scalene muscles along the anteroposterior orientation. The supraclavicular block can be used to provide anesthesia for any surgery on the upper extremity that does not involve the shoulder (1).
The nerve stimulator is set to an output of zero and then slowly turned up until a motor response can just be seen. The motor response ceases immediately after the injection is started. This constitutes a positive Raj test, which further ensures that the secondary block through the catheter as well as the primary block will be successful. Place the connecting device and catheter in the ﬁxation device (see Chapter 18) or similar device, and place this on the contralateral shoulder of the patient in a convenient location.
