Erector Spinae Block for Rib Fractures

Another study uses an arguably simpler block than paravertebral for rib fractures. It quantified incentive spirometry pre and post block.

The majority had continuous catheters and the study found that erector spinae plane blocks were associated with improved inspiratory capacity and analgesic outcomes following rib fracture, without haemodynamic instability.
