    lovely discussion, As for as my experience is concerned I have tried both blocks, I agree with Noel that use of Bier’s block takes lot of resources and time for a senior ED physician certainly in a busy department, with the use of Penthrox and hematoma block I have seen encouraging results particularly mentioning about elderly patients with multiple comorbidities, I can say surely I have saved certain surgeries with satisfactory results by the use of hematoma block and Penthrox ( I have no conflict of interest ). I would must say patient selection for the procedure is key of success.
