The Atlas of Ultrasound and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia shows how to use ultrasound technology and how to master guided nerve stimulation techniques to achieve consistently good results. Throughout the book, ultrasound images are correlated with MRIs to enhance anatomic identification. In addition, peripheral nerve block techniques for upper and lower extremities and the trunk are demonstrated step by step. With visualized needle placement and the ability to see the nerves, ultrasound and nerve stimulation-guided techniques instill confidence in the anesthesiologist, offer safety to patients, and enhance the efficient use of time in the operating room.

From the Back Cover:

There are few situations in anesthesia where precise anatomic location is more important than in regional anesthesia. But, of course, any anesthesiologist who performs regional on a regular basis is fully aware of the frustration of attempting to locate nerves on a trial and error basis. Ultrasound imaging now enables us to visualize nerves, and this exciting technology offers several distinct benefits over conventional nerve locating techniques. The Atlas of Ultrasound and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia illustrates how to use ultrasound technology and nerve stimulation techniques to achieve consistently good results. Throughout the book, ultrasound images are correlated with MRI images to enhance anatomic identification. In addition, peripheral nerve block techniques for upper and lower extremities and the trunk are demonstrated step-by-step. With the luxury of being able to actually see the target nerve and the course of the needle as it approaches that nerve, anesthesiologists can now perform regional anesthesia with much greater accuracy. This approach allows the anesthesiologist to conduct regional anesthesia with much greater confidence and efficiency and in doing so the patient is the ultimate beneficiary in terms of success and safety.

The book features well-illustrated comparisons of anatomic drawings, cadaveric images, and ultrasound and MRI images. Also: 

  • Detailed description of relevant anatomy followed by a clinical description of performing ultrasound imaging and subsequent blockade of target nerves
  • Side-by-side comparison of labeled and unlabeled ultrasound images simulating the clinician’s experience in everyday practice
  • Both common and alternative approaches are discussed in detail, each discussion calling upon the wisdom of experts in the field of regional anesthesia
  • Clinical pearls about needle adjustment included in troubleshooting tables in the nerve stimulation sections

Review:

From the reviews:

"This is an extremely valuable addition to the field. It is a compilation of practically all that we know about ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia." (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Review Service, February 2008)                                

"The completeness of the book based on the most current technological advances in the field of regional anesthesia is laudable. This atlas represents an excellent educational tool for both neophytes and teachers of ultrasound and nerve stimulation-guided regional Anesthesia. At the same time, it embodies a reference book of outstanding value for the more proficient regional Anesthesiologists." (Jovan Popovic, Anesthesia and Analgesia, Vol. 106 (6), June 2008)

"The authors are to be congratulated for a well-designed book that explains their approach to performing regional blocks with the aid of nerve stimulation and ultrasound . ... This is an excellent resource for any clinician performing regional blocks." (Steven R. Clendenen, Anesthesiology, Vol. 109 (4), October 2008)

"Atlas of Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia has a wealth of practical information for both students and seasoned anesthesiologists ... . fills the vacuum in the literature on modern regional anesthesia techniques, and ... it should deserve a spot in every anesthesiologist’s library." (Admir Hadzic, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, January 2009)

“It is a highly detailed book and contains most of the information that one is likely to require, the use of coloured tables for particularly useful information is very good. Because of this it is a good book to dip in and out of when required. So all in all it is a book that comprehensively covers all that one would want from a reference relating to the use of ultrasound and nerve stimulation in regional anaesthesia.” (N. Hawkins, Anaesthesia, Vol. 65, 2010)
