Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia 2nd Edition PDF
Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia 2nd Edition ebook
Ultrasound technology is enabling anesthesiologists to perform regional anaesthetic procedures with greater confidence in accuracy and precision. With improvements in visualizing neural anatomy and needle movement, ultrasound guidance improves patient safety and operating room efficiency. This book offers a detailed, stepwise approach to this technique, identifying pearls and pitfalls to ensure success. Topics are organized into four chapters. The first chapter provides the basic principles behind ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia, setting a strong context for the rest of the book. The last three cover the nerve blocks: upper extremity, lower extremity, and chest, trunk and spine. Each nerve block is comprehensively explained, divided up by introduction, anatomy, clinical applications, technique, alternate techniques, complications, and pearls. This new edition includes discussions of 6 new blocks: the suprascapular block, axillary nerve block for shoulder surgery, fascia iliac block, lateral femoral cutaneous block, and the adductor canal block. This edition also contains over 40 new procedural and imaging figures, an appendix on what blocks to perform for specific surgeries, and new information on the choice of local anaesthetic agent, types of catheters and practical ultrasound physics to help improve scanning. Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia provides authoritative, in-depth coverage of ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia for the anesthesiologist beginning to use ultrasound and makes a great reference for the more seasoned physician.
“The second edition of Ultrasound-Guided Regional Anesthesia builds on the successes of its predecessor, maintaining the concise style of the original while introducing several new blocks alongside a refined complement of ultrasonographic images. Universally appealing to all skill levels, this text makes a worthy addition to the library of any practitioner seeking to enhance their understanding of regional anaesthesia.” — David MacLean, MD and Faraj W. Abdallah, MD, Anesthesia and Analgesia
” The new appendix for this second edition serves as a quick reference guide for choosing the optimal nerve block technique. The illustrations are superb; the ultrasound images for each procedure are shown in duplicate – an unaltered raw ultrasound image is juxtaposed with a clearly labelled coloured overlay – providing excellent clarity.” — Canadian Journal of Anesthesia
