Superficial cervical plexus block may be safe, effective for emergency medicine use
from Clinical Pain Advisor
Superficial cervical plexus block (SCPB) may be safe and effective for use in emergency medicine, according to results published in the Journal of Emergency Medicine. The prospective observational study included participants who presented to the emergency department with painful conditions of the "cape" distribution of the neck and shoulder who were given SCPB (n=27). Verbal numeric pain scores on a 0 to 10 scale were recorded pre- and postblock, and the incidence of any immediate complications was examined.
