This study is developed to determine if the local anaesthetic dose can be reduced by the use of intermittent bolus technique compared to continuous infusion when the nerve catheter is placed underneath the paraneurium by ultrasound guidance in the popliteal fossa. Our primary outcome is local anesthetic use the first 48 hours after connecting the peripheral nerve catheter. Our hypothesis is that with an intermittent bolus less local anaesthetic is necessary ... Read More

Sickle cell disease (SCD) affects haemoglobin - the molecule in blood cells which carries oxygen. It causes red blood cells to become abnormal crescent (or sickle)- shaped. Sickled red blood cells cannot travel through small blood vessels as easily as normal red blood cells which can lead to blockages. This means that oxygen may be prevented from getting to where it is needed. Individuals with sickle cell disease also suffer form abnormality in the lining of ... Read More

Burn injuries are a common presentation to A&E in the UK (175,000 per year) of whom 13,000 require hospital admission. Treatment of a single burn can cost more than £63,000, and is ultimately dependent on the depth. Most burns are assessed by experienced clinicians within a few days of injury. Accurate evaluation of burn depth can be very difficult with the naked eye. Inaccuracy can lead to longer hospital stays, worse scarring and greater financial costs ... Read More
