"Improving patient care by promoting excellence in RA practice, education and research"

Regional anaesthesia during the coronavirus pandemic

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