Regional anaesthesia during the coronavirus pandemic

During the current pandemic regional anaesthesia and analgesia potentially offers several important benefits to both patients and health care staff:

  • Reduce the requirement for general anaesthesia and airway manipulation
  • Reduce risk of airway complications such as chest infection 
  • Decreased length of stay

Recommendations about RA and Covid have also been produced by ASRA, and the summary sheet can be downloaded here
