Summary

The use of ultrasound-guided techniques in regional anaesthesia has emerged as a game-changing modality for many anaesthesiologists. With the advantage of providing real-time visualization of nerves and surrounding structures, it has the potential to improve the safety and efficacy of nerve blocks.

Learning objectives

Demonstrate proper technique in using the ultrasound device, ensuring appropriate probe selection, placement, and orientation to identify target nerves and surrounding structures. Perform ultrasound-guided nerve blocks with precision, ensuring the correct placement of the needle and the spread of the anesthetic agent around the nerve structures. Interpret ultrasound images efficiently, distinguishing between nerves, vessels, muscles, and other relevant anatomical structures. Manage potential complications associated with ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia, including recognizing early signs of complications and implementing appropriate interventions. Incorporate best practices for patient safety and comfort during the procedure, such as optimizing ultrasound settings, using appropriate aseptic techniques, and effectively communicating with the patient throughout the procedure.
