Supraclavicular Nerve Block

Dr. Gregory Hickman, MD

The supraclavicular block is used for surgeries or postoperative pain control for the upper extremities. It is best for areas below the mid-humerus level. Above the mid-humerus, the shoulder area, an interscalene block would provide better coverage. However, if enough volume is used it can diffuse to the shoulder area.
