Abstract

A 25 year-old male presented with penetrating chest trauma to a split forward surgical team located in an austere setting. Due to limited resources and a minimal monitoring in-transit a regional anesthetic was placed for pain control. This is the first description of an Erector Spinae Block utilized in a far forward combat setting.
