This week in Gasnet – 28th February 2021

Primary topic of conversation this week on the Gasnet email discussion list was the addition of adjuvants to major regional nerve blocks such as Supraclavicular and Popliteal. Dexamethasone was discussed widely and Clonidine got an honourable mention. Then the great debate as to whether these drugs should be mixed with the local anaesthetic solution or given intravenously. Lets say opinions differ!
