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.
This program is custom-built for practitioners with limited previous experience as a building block to introducing ultrasound guidance in their practice.
- Review the most important developments in fascial tissue injections for management of postoperative pain.
- Design a plan on how to manage challenging patients and techniques.
- Review optimal application of fascial tissue infiltration in perioperative setting.
- Review the mechanisms of complications with fascial tissue infiltration and employ strategies for their prevention
- Review emerging technologies and pharmacology in ultrasound-guided intervention acute pain procedures.
