Brief Summary: Background: There are three methods for procedural sedation in upper extremity traumas; systemic, regional and local anesthesia. There is controversy in the literature regarding the method of choice for this purpose.Conditions
Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare conscious sedation and Bier's block methods for pain reduction in upper extremity trauma patients.
Patients and Methods: This was a randomized clinical trial. Patients were randomly allocated to either the Bier's block or the conscious sedation group. Pain reduction was assessed by a numerical rating scale; patients, surgeons and physicians responsible for analgesia satisfaction were assessed using a five-point Likert scale.
In this study, we aimed to compare the effectiveness, complications, duration, hemodynamic stability and patient and physician satisfaction between systemic analgesia and Bier's block method performed at the emergency department.
