Shoulder pain Rx

22 Aug

So patient is going to have steroid injection with lidocaine into the shoulder for torn rotator cuff pain. Ouch. That is the least of my worries though. The patient only has a blood pressure of 78/56. The orthopedic surgeon who is about to inject the steroids into the patients arm with a needle, thinks that the needle should raise the blood pressure.

The shoulder is the least of my worries.
