Abstract

In this article we have tried to describe the technique of the most used conduction anesthesia of nerves of upper extremity and its purpose. RA provides adequate surgical analgesia due to peripheral blockade of pain impulse with the preservation of normal vital functions. The physiology of the RA contributed to improving the methods of its implementation, and the use of new local anesthetics and catheter technique during regional survey has allowed to determine the location of RA in surgery in a qualitatively new level.
