Ideally suited for physicians and other healthcare professionals, this concise, practical guide covers the essentials of operating ultrasound equipment for peripheral nerve blockade, tips and pitfalls for needle guidance, and the sonographic anatomy of the brachial plexus, femoral nerve and sciatic nerve. Unlike other instructional material, the authors focus on providing an in-depth understanding of the anatomic relationships and sonographic anatomy as well as strategies to help you locate target nerves on the most difficult patients. The electronic book format has afforded the authors the ability to utilize artist drawings, anatomic dissections, MRI scans, video clips and ultrasound clips to illustrate key concepts. In addition, the authors have included guided practice sessions to encourage students to practice key concepts with their own ultrasound equipment.
Finished my Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine fellowship last year. When not fellowship-trained people ask me for a concise, easy read…this is the book I recommend. There is nothing else that comes close.
