Anesthesiologists have only been incorporating ultrasound guidance for regional anesthesia into their practice for about 10 years. Using ultrasound allows clinicians to visualize their needle and target structures with confidence, while also avoiding structures in the needle’s path, potentially decreasing complications.
Dr. Brandon Winchester is an anesthesiologist using ultrasound guidance for nerve blocks. His new educational eBook, "Ultrasound-Guided Regional Anesthesia," discusses the approaches and anatomy of various ultrasound-guided nerve blocks for orthopedic surgery. Dr. Winchester covers transducer and patient positioning, needle placement and technique, ultrasound anatomy, and useful tips and tricks. Download the eBook here.
