46 REGIONAL BLOCKS AND ANATOMY FOR ORTHOPEDIC ANESTHESIA C FIGURE 3-5 (continued) C, The palpating fingers are moved until the groove can be palpated at the level of C6. D, A solid line is drawn from the dorsal spine of C6 to the suprasternal notch. 6, Dorsal spine of C6; 7, dorsal spine of C7; LS, levator scapular muscle; T, trapezius muscle. The dot in the apex of the “V” between these two muscles indicates the point of needle entry. D FIGURE 3-6 The levator scapulae and trapezius muscles are separated by the index and middle fingers of the nonoperative hand, and the skin and subcutaneous tissue are injected with a local anesthetic agent using a 25-gauge needle.

The point at which the lateral border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle meets the clavicle is marked as shown in Figure 4-4 (medial arrow). 5 cm lateral to the insertion of the sternocleidomastoid muscle to the clavicle or the width of the clavicular head of the patient’s sternocleidomastoid muscle (see Fig. 4-4, lateral arrow), and approximately 1 cm above the clavicle (see Fig. 4-4, dot). A 50-mm, short-bevel, 22-gauge insulated needle is used. After a small skin wheal is raised, the stimulating needle is inserted perpendicular to the skin (Fig.

The catheter is advanced retrograde through the needle and the needle is removed, leaving a loop of catheter at the original catheter exit site. The catheter is situated deep to the external jugular vein and exits in the area of the suprasternal notch. The skin bridge makes removal of the catheter easier. If a skin bridge is not used, the catheter is “buried” under the skin. Place the Luer lock connecting device on the proximal end of the catheter and attach the nerve stimulator and the syringe with the local anesthetic agent to the connecting device (Fig.
