Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia and Vascular Access Workshop

Location NYSORA Academy on the Hudson
Date March 30 – 31, 2019


A comprehensive introduction to ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia and vascular access workshop, comprising 14.25 hours of intense didactic and hands-on learning. It is simply impossible to design a course that fits needs of practitioners with diverging skills in ultrasound practice. Consequently, most courses must make compromises in program in an attempt to cater to delegates with different levels of experience. This course will focus on the must-know knowledge and skills to perform the most common nerve blocks and IV access. Attendees will spend over 80% of the time performing live scanning under the supervision of NYSORA faculty. The lectures and state of the art 3D virtual cadaver imaging complement the hands-on learning, giving all participants a comprehensive introduction to USGRA.

In short: this program is custom-built for practitioners with limited previous experience as a building block to introducing ultrasound guidance in their practice.

Learning Objectives.

  • Learn the essential principles of ultrasound in regional anesthesia
  • Become proficient in sonoanatomy essential to the practice of regional anesthesia
  • Be able to apply imaging techniques & transducer maneuvers that improve ultrasound peripheral nerve image
  • Learn the most common blocks performed in current regional anesthesia practiceƒ
  • Bring back home the rock-solid concepts of documentation, monitoring and perioperative management during performance of USGRA

Target Audience.

Anesthesiology practitioners and other health care professionals eager to begin their regional anesthesia practice with a profound understanding of the essential principles of ultrasound, sonoanatomy and the tools necessary to perform the most common blocks and IV access in their practice.
