I'm with Dr. Schreiber's Lab at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and we received a notification that you have
expressed interest in participating in our research study involving investigating detecting compartment syndrome pain in the presence of regional anesthesia in healthy volunteers. The goal of this study is to understand how a numbing medication in the leg (nerve block) may change pain.

We are looking for healthy volunteers with no chronic pain or issues with their legs to participate in this study. If you meet the screening criteria for this study and would like to participate, the study will consist of a one-time study visit that will last approximately 5 hours. During this study visit, we will introduce you to a series of tests called Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) where we use a combination of a pressure sensors, weighted, specialized metal filament probes that feel sharp but will not break your skin, and a cuff that will squeeze around your legs and simulate pain. All of these procedures will be explained to you in person, and we will demonstrate procedures on ourselves before you decide to consent to the study. You will also receive two injections in your left leg under ultrasound by an anesthesiologist.

If you are interested in participating in the study, please click the link to the survey below.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participating in the study, please feel free to email them to me (ykchen@partners.org). If you would rather discuss information regarding on the study over the phone, please just let me know and provide a good contact phone number and preferred call time so I can give you a call. If you are eligible to participate based on the screening, someone from the lab will email you back to schedule an appointment.

Best regards,
