Femoral nerve block in the initial management of femoral shaft fractures
Emergency Medicine Journal
The aim of this study was to demonstrate that the under-used technique of femoral nerve block (F.N.B.) (Berry, 1977) has excellent analgesic action for femoral shaft fractures when performed by junior staff. It had no recorded side effects and was used in all age groups for fractures at all levels along the femoral shaft. Twenty-seven consecutive patients were studied as they presented in an accident room, all received a femoral nerve block (10 ml 1% Lignocaine with 1:200000 adrenaline) fromdoi:10.1136/emj.4.3.163 fatcat:4tgwf53njveafghkjrdr4yxlmy
