In the present study, the efficacy of a nerve stimulator in performing brachial plexus block (BPB) in dogs was investigated. The nerve blocking effects of bupivacaine and ropivacaine for BPB were also compared. Twelve beagles were allocated to groups based on the following treatments: conventional BPB with 0.5% bupivacaine (0.5% BupiM group) or BPB with 0.5% bupivacaine, 0.5% ropivacaine or 0.75% ropivacaine and a nerve stimulator (the 0.5% BupiS, 0.5% RopiS and 0.75% RopiS groups, respectively… CONTINUE READING
