Brachial plexus blockade is commonly used in upper extremity surgery because it causes a good effective intraoperative cooperation anesthesia and analgesia. When performed under USG guidance, it has high success and low complication rate. Since multiple extremity burns are present and difficult airway patients have increased blood supply in the extremities and provide long-term analgesia in burn wound healing, regional anesthesia is a good choice. In anesthesia approach, regional anesthesia technique is a good alternative to general anesthesia especially in patients with large burns accompanied by facial and neck burns. In this case, we aimed to present a case of spinal anesthesia in addition to successful lowdose bilateral infraclavicular block with USG in a patient with multiple limb burns and a difficult airway suspicion.
