Ultrasound guided nerve, plexus, ganglion, and neuraxial blocks for expert level analgesia of the neck and shoulder, trunk, pelvic floor and perineum, and lower limb.
The expert ultrasound guided nerve blocks curriculum is for a specialist anaesthetist who works dedicated with a high flow of ultrasound guided regional anesthesia on a daily basis and performs the basic and advanced nerve blocks routinely and is engaged in research and/or teaching of ultrasound guided nerve blocks.
The expert level blocks are performed using ultrasound +/- nerve stimulator nerve localisation, linear high-frequency or curved array low frequency probes, in-plane or out-of-plane approach, short +/- long axis target nerve visualisation, single injection or continuous catheter infusion technique.
