Abstract: A prospective interventional study was done among 70 patients admitted in orthopaedic department for upper limb surgeries in GSL Medical College. By this study block assessment was done using perfusion index. The baseline mean perfusion index of blocked and unblocked arm was found to have no statistical significance. At the end of 30 minutes the mean perfusion index was 7.73+/ - 1.02 in blocked arm and 2.86+/ - 1.06 in the unblocked arm with a statistically significant p value of < 0.0001.
