Wednesday May 8, 2019: Basic Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia
The basic level focus is exclusively on in-plane needle guidance and single shot nerve blocks for perioperative analgesia. The blocks comprise a selection of easily learned and safe nerve blocks permitting effective perioperative analgesia of the upper limb, the lower limb, and the abdominal wall. The objective is to provide anesthesiologists with basic skills in order to alleviate perioperative pain related primarily to orthopedic surgery. The course and associated e-learning is developed by Thomas Fichtner Bendtsen, Professor (assoc.), Aarhus University Hospital.

Challenges in Point-of-Care
Acute intervention. Chronic patient management. Needle Guidance… Action-oriented patient care. When physicians who use ultrasound at the point of care met with GE scientists, they asked for a system designed for immediate-action workflow, bright-room operation, and precise guidance… throughout the facility…
See clearly. See quickly. Guide precisely. Those were the values users requested that drove the creation of our GE Point of Care Ultrasound products.
