2-18). The catheter is advanced beyond the needle tip (Fig. 2-19). If the motor response stops or decreases, carefully withdraw the catheter to inside the needle shaft again (Fig. 2-20). CHAPTER 2: Interscalene Blocks 33 FIGURE 2-16 After an optimal motor response is obtained, the stylet is removed from the needle. FIGURE 2-17 The needle is left on the plexus and a stimulating catheter, now attached to the nerve stimulator, is advanced through the needle. FIGURE 2-18 The special marking on the catheter indicates whether the tip of the catheter protrudes beyond the needle tip.
FIGURE 3-5 A, Feel for the groove between the trapezius and levator scapulae muscles in the occipital area, where this groove is widest and easiest to palpate. B, Move the palpating ﬁngers caudad. A B The subcutaneous path intended for tunneling of the catheter is also adequately anesthetized (Fig. 3-7). The trapezius and levator scapulae muscles are again separated with the ﬁngers of the nonoperative hand and a 17- or 18-gauge insulated Tuohy needle, which is attached to a nerve stimulator set to a current output of 1 to 3 mA, a frequency of 2 Hz, and a pulse width of 100 to 300 msec, is advanced aiming toward the suprasternal notch until contact with the bony structures is made (Fig.
For example, the infusion strategy for a rotator cuff repair, in which motor function is undesirable initially, would use a high volume and high concentration of local anesthetic drug initially, followed by a high infusion rate of a relatively high concentration of drug and zero or a small volume of patient-controlled boluses. Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder, on the other hand, would require a small volume and low concentration of the initial bolus drug CHAPTER 2: Interscalene Blocks FIGURE 2-25 A and B, The Luer lock connecting device is attached to the proximal end of the catheter.
