Knowns and unknowns about regional anesthesia techniques and local anesthetics

In this study, a questionnaire was used to obtain information about the ideas and experiences of doctors working as operating staff from several specialties in regards to regional anesthesia and local anesthetic drugs to determine the extent to which their knowledge corroborates these types of application and to obtain data for studies to fulfill the future needs of this field. The questionnaire consisted of 18 questions about the use of regional anesthesia and local anesthetic drugs at the time of an operation at nearby hospitals. In total, 109 doctors from 12 branches were included in this study. Although the preference of doctors regarding the selection of regional anesthesia as the first priority varied by field, this choice was not affected by variables such as age, being a research assistant or specialist and working in a state or private hospital. Doctors who were 25-30 years old had more information about local anesthetic drugs than doctors who were 40 years old and older, and this difference was significant. Because doctors aged 40 years and older had less information about local anesthetic drugs among all the doctors studied, training doctors via postgraduate education about this subject would be a better decision.
