Overview

The Atlas of Ultrasound and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia shows how to use ultrasound technology and how to master guided nerve stimulation techniques to achieve consistently good results. Throughout the book, ultrasound images are correlated with MRIs to enhance anatomic identification. In addition, peripheral nerve block techniques for upper and lower extremities and the trunk are demonstrated step by step. With visualized needle placement and the ability to see the nerves, ultrasound and nerve stimulation-guided techniques instill confidence in the anesthesiologist, offer safety to patients, and enhance the efficient use of time in the operating room.
