Because this block is most often carried out through a single injection site and the operator relies on the spread of local anesthetic solution, one must allow sufficient “soak time” after the injection. This often means from 20 to 35 minutes. If there is difficulty in identifying the anterior scalene muscle, one maneuver is to have the patient maximally inhale while the anesthesiologist palpates the neck. During this maneuver the scalene muscles should contract before the sternocleidomastoid muscle contracts, and this may allow clarification of the anterior scalene muscle in the difficult-to-palpate neck.

These commonly include the ulnar nerve at the elbow, the radial nerve at the mid-humeral level, and the common peroneal nerve at the fibular head area. Ambulatory patients with a continuous brachial plexus block in place should always use a properly fitted arm sling to prevent traction injury to the brachial plexus or injury to the radial nerve by the sling. Pressure or undue traction to the ulnar nerve (hyperflexion at the elbow) should be avoided. When the block involves the quadriceps and hamstrings muscles, there is a possibility of falling with ambulation in the immediate postoperative period; leg splints should be routinely fitted and patients should not ambulate unassisted.
