Overview

The anatomic approach assists the anesthesiologist in gaining a better understanding of the relationships needed for achieving success with regional anesthetic techniques. The book includes photographs of human specimens with corresponding drawings to help illustrate anatomy in an intelligible manner. In addition, it includes photographs and drawings of the regional anesthetic techniques so the reader can develop a clear understanding of the correlation between the various landmarks and proper needle placement.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Long K. Han, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is an atlas of anatomy and techniques of regional anesthesia.
Purpose: The goal is to use the latest advances in computer-generated graphics and image enhancement technology to construct a regional anesthesia textbook that is remarkable for many illustrations using real anatomic structures. These objectives are well met. The most impressive feature is the quantity and quality of the illustrations.
Audience: This book is intended to be a reference for all clinicians, with the principle goal of providing knowledge of anatomy and techniques to all practitioners of regional anesthesia. The authors are from several medical centers and include some of the most well-known authorities in the field.
Features: The book contains many very high quality computer-generated pictures. These illustrations are the unique feature of this book. Anatomic pictures from dissections of cadavers are superimposed on pictures of real models to give them the impression of anatomic structures. Other illustrations are close-ups of blocks in difficult to access areas. The illustrations are accompanied by text that details anatomic relationships, indications for the blocks, technical aspects of the blocks, and potential complications of the blocks. Most chapters have several references. These references tend to be pertinent, although some are dated.
Assessment: This is an excellent textbook of anatomy and techniques of regional anesthesia for all clinicians. Although there are several excellent entries in this field, this particular book stands out because it has outstanding illustrations of both anatomic and technical aspects of regional anesthesia. I believe it belongs in the library of all practitioners of regional anesthesia.
