STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the influence of injection speed on pain during injection of local anaesthetics. METHODS In a blinded randomised study with 36 healthy volunteers, each volunteer received three injections of 4.5 ml lidocaine subcutaneously on the abdomen. The injections were given during 15 seconds (0.3 ml/s), 30 seconds (0.15 ml/s), and 45(More)

BACKGROUND Digital nerve block is associated with pain. In a search for methods to reduce the discomfort, we investigated how the volume of anaesthetic fluid influences pain during subcutaneous digital nerve block, and how it affects the success of the anaesthesia. METHODS A randomized blinded prospective study was performed on 36 healthy volunteers. The(More)
