4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"The book can serve as an introduction, a refresher, or a supplement, depending on the experience and background of the reader. The authors are well regarded for their teaching, research, and clinical abilities....The book covers basic and advanced regional anesthesia techniques. It includes mostly classic approaches, but also offers some novel techniques for both single shot and continuous nerve blockade. The illustrations are superb, especially those that reveal the underlying structures, providing an almost three-dimensional view of the relevant anatomy."--Doody's Review Service

Authored by the world's leading authorities, this is an authoritative, full-color instructional manual for mastering nerve block techniques. Beautifully illustrated with 350 color illustrations, including 175 clinical photographs of actual patients.
