Femoral Nerve Blocks
Patients who receive ropivacaine or bupivacaine during femoral nerve block.
Procedure: Femoral nerve block with ropivacaine or bupivacaine
- Concentration of Local Anesthetic Injected for Femoral Nerve Block [ Time Frame: length of surgery ]
- Total mg of Local Anesthetic Injected for Femoral Nerve Block [ Time Frame: length of surgery ]
- Intraoperative Tylenol Administered [ Time Frame: length of surgery ]Amount of Tylenol administered based on if got ropivacaine or bupivacaine femeral nerve block.
- Post-operative Opioids Administered [ Time Frame: in PACU (1 hr post-op) ]Amount of opioid consumption in the post operative anesthesia care unit depending on if the patient received femoral nerve block with ropivacaine or bupivacaine
- Time to Discharge From PACU [ Time Frame: Conclusion of surgery until admission to assigned unit or to phase, an expected average of 1 hour ]
- Post-operative Pain Scale Using FLACC [ Time Frame: 1 hour post-op ]The Face, Legs, Activity, Cry, Consolability scale or FLACC scale is a measurement used to assess pain for children between the ages of 2 months and 7 years or individuals that are unable to communicate their pain. The scale is scored in a range of 0-10 with 0 representing no pain.
- Post-operative Pain Scale Using VAS [ Time Frame: 1 hour post-op ]The visual analogue scale (VAS) for pain is a validated, subjective measure where scores are recorded by making a handwritten mark on a 10-cm line that represents a continuum between "no pain" and "worst pain."
