Abstract

In the modern era of technology and life style, non communicable disease are more prevalent with
additional risk factors involved in the subjects admitted for upper limb surgeries, hence regional anesthesia
techniques has gained importance. Adjuvant usage in regional anesthesia has a beneficial effect in extending
the prolongation of anesthesia and hence our study aimed to compare the efficacy of 0.75% ropivacaine
added with magnesium sulphate and 0.75% plain ropivacaine in ultrasound guided supraclavicular nerve
blocks for upper limb surgeries. A total of 60 study subjects with 30 in each group were randomized
to the study. Results obtained showed a statistically significant difference with rapid beginning and time
duration of motor and sensory anesthesia in the patients who received Magnesium sulphate as adjuvant
when compared to the plain ropivacaine group.

Keywords: Supraclavicular block, Magnesium sulphate, Ropivacaine.
