The ability to image the Plexus, Rib, Pleura and Supraclavicular using Ultrasound Guidance has increased the safety, speed, and effectiveness of Plexus Nerve Blocks (PNB). For the doctor to perform this procedure effectively, an Ultrasound Scanner with a Linear 10 to 14 MHz scanning ability is the best option.
Also, about 25mL of Local Anesthetic is needed for Plexus Nerve Block. The goal of the block is to place the needle within the brachial plexus and inject local anesthetic. So this is where the SIFULTRAS-3.5 comes in handy, assuring an optimal image of the subclavian artery, brachial plexus, first rib, and pleura, for the Anesthesiologist to operate effectively.
This Ultrasound guided process is done by placing the SIFULTRAS-3.5 over the Supraclavicular Fossa and scanning at different angles to obtain the best image of the subclavian artery, brachial plexus, and first rib. The SIFULTRAS-3.5 can be applied to further elucidate the position of blood vessels in the area of interest.
This clinical application may be performed by an Anesthesiologist.
