It provides excellent anesthesia for a variety of procedures. Brachial plexus block is commonly used for the upper extremity. Individual blocks of the sciatic, femoral, and obturator nerves can be used for the lower extremity. An amount that is close to the maximally tolerated dose is required to produce blockade of a major extremity.
