    Ropivacaine has reduced risk of cardiotoxicity, neurotoxicity with rapid recovery of motor function. Variety of adjuvants have been used to prolong the duration of local anaesthetic action in regional blocks. Dexmedetomidine is a commonly used adjuant which significantly prolongs the duration of peripheral nerve blocks. we have conducted an observational study on effect of Dexmedetomidine as an adjuvant to Ropivacaine in ultrasound guided supraclavicular brachial plexus blockade in adult upper limb surgeries observed on the basis of onset and duration of analgesia.
