Abstract

Postoperative pain is one of the most important factors in regard to patient outcomes. It has been linked with patient satisfaction, length of stay, and overall hospital costs. Peripheral nerve blocks have provided a safe, effective method to control early postoperative pain when symptoms are most severe. Peripheral nerve blocks, whether used intraoperatively or postoperatively, provide an alternative or adjunct to conventional pain management methods for patients who may not tolerate heavy narcotics or general anesthesia, in particular the elderly and those with cardiopulmonary disease.
