Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture

Slide: 25 of 46

Effectiveness of Nerve Block on Acute Pain: Conclusions

In general, when compared with usual care, nerve blocks provide greater relief from the acute pain of hip fracture. The strength of evidence for the overall literature leading to this conclusion is moderate. Nerve blocks used intraoperatively can be as effective as spinal anesthesia for relief of acute pain. The strength of evidence supporting this conclusion is low.
