Central venous catheterization is a common procedure in hospitals. Internal jugular vein (IJV) cannulation is the most preferred vein for this purpose. During the procedure, infiltration of local anesthetic (LA) agents into the skin and subcutaneous tissues is a commonly used method to provide patient comfort and reduce pain. There is an increasing need to improve the quality of health care delivery. An important component of health service quality is patient satisfaction. The aim of this study is to compare the superficial cervical plexus block and the intermediate cervical plexus block applied under the guidance of ultrasound in terms of patient satisfaction and procedural comfort during central catheterization of the internal jugular vein.


This prospective randomized study will be performed on patients undergoing central venous catheterization into the internal jugular vein. Patients who agreed to participate in the study will be divided into two groups using the closed-envelope randomization method; Group S: Superficial cervical plexus block group Group I: Intermediate cervical plexus group

After routine monitoring and RAMSEY 2 level sedation is achieved, a superficial or intermediate cervical plexus block will be applied according to randomization by a researcher experienced in a peripheral block. Patient pain level (to be evaluated with the Numeric Pain Rating Scale) during the block and catheterization procedure (first needle insertion, dilatation, catheter placement, and suture phase). Thirty minutes after the procedure, patient satisfaction will be evaluated with a Likert-type scale.
