Intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA) or Bier block anesthesia was once a common anesthetic technique for surgical procedures on the body's extremities where a local anesthetic is injected intravenously. The technique usually involves exsanguination, which forces blood out of the extremity, followed by the application of pneumatic tourniquets to safely stop blood flow.
The Bier block or Intravenous regional anesthesia is a regional anesthetic technique used for surgery of the elbow, forearm, wrist and hand. Intravenous regional anesthesia is a safe and effective block that provides both safe and excellent surgical anesthesia. Bier block or Intravenous regional anesthesia regional is a short lasting regional technique and is performed in the operating room itself.
