Context

Rib fractures are common in trauma, occurring in up to 10% of patients. They are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality.1

Management of pain in the emergency department can be challenging, due to co-existing injuries and unclear medical history.

Serratus anterior plane block (SAPB) can be used as part of multimodal analgesia in the treatment of anterior lateral rib fractures. This module may be used for reference alongside formal practical training in performance of the block.
