Orthopaedic surgery. Anaesthetist monitoring a patient during surgery following an injection of local anaesthetic for a nerve block. The injection was carried out on the patient's left brachial plexus, a bundle of nerves that leads to the left arm. This has numbed the arm, allowing surgery to be carried out on the patient's broken wrist. The operation is being carried out by a surgeon behind the drape (blue).
