Magnesium and Pain

Internet Journal of Anesthesiology – Role Of Magnesium Sulphate For Brachial Plexus Analgesia

Aims of the study were to evaluate two different doses of magnesium sulphate as a sole analgesic for brachial plexus analgesia and to compare it with diclofenac sodium given intramuscularly.


We conclude that, for the first time magnesium was used independently in a small dose in axillary sheath which results in good analgesia as determined by decreased uses of rescue analgesia without producing any major side effects.
