"Regional anesthesia is a fast-growing field, fuelled by the application of ultrasound technology over the last decade. This book is a technique-oriented guide, which introduces the use of ultrasound technology with practical instruction in the placement of peripheral nerve blocks and continuous perineural catheters. Each procedure is summarized for quick, easy reference, and supplemented by ultrasound images, color photos, and detailed illustrations. Helpful hints and instructions are provided to further optimize block success. Chapters are organized into four sections, focusing on introductory concepts, upper extremity peripheral nerve blocks, lower extremity peripheral nerve blocks and continuous perineural catheters. Written by instructors from a major academic medical center who work in a fast-paced ambulatory setting, this is a key text for residents, fellows and staff physicians who wish to incorporate the use of ultrasound into the scope of their anesthetic practice"--Provided by publisher.

Industry Reviews

Well written with a straightforward style...text reads easily and it often feels as if the authors are conversing and instructing you in person...this book would make a welcome addition to any library as a fast and useful reference for the busy anesthesia provider wishing to incorporate ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia in his or her practice. Anesthesiology (2011), Jane C. Ahn, MD, University of California, Irvine
