Regional anesthesia is one of the most satisfying expertise in anesthesia. Nerve stimulation guided peripheral nerve blocks greatly enhance the success rate of block. Often the nerve stimulation needle becomes a limiting factor due to cost and unavailablity. We have proposed a simple innovation to create a nerve stimulation needle at the point of care that would overcome the limitation associated with commercially available needle for nerve stimulation .This innovation may prove instrumental in training of anesthesia residents at no extracost to the patient.
