We hypothesized that tourniquet placement on the forearm vs upper arm during IVRA for distal upper extremity surgery may result in less tourniquet pain, lower the need for analgesic interventions, and decrease post-anaesthesia care unit (PACU) admission. METHODS Patients for distal upper extremity surgery were randomized into upper or forearm single-cuff tourniquet placement. IVRA was either… CONTINUE READING
