What are some of the benefits of regional anesthesia?

Patients who receive a regional anesthetic block usually have less nausea or vomiting and generally awaken faster. In most circumstances, the pain control is superior when compared to intravenous or oral opioids (narcotics).  Since the pain control is superior, less opioids and its associated side effects are decreased.
