Regional Anesthesia for Painful Injuries after Disasters (RAPID): Study Protocol For A Randomized Controlled TrialLevine, AC; Teicher, C; Aluisio, AR; Wiskel, T; Valles, P; Trelles, M; Glavis-Bloom, J; Grais, RFF (BioMed Central, 2016-11-14)Lower extremity trauma during earthquakes accounts for the largest burden of disaster-related injuries. Insufficient pain management is common in resource-limited disaster settings, and regional anesthesia (RA) may reduce pain in injured patients beyond current standards of care. To date, no controlled trials have been conducted to evaluate the use of RA for pain management in a disaster setting.
