Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia Workshop

Ultrasound guided techniques in anesthesiology, mainly regional anesthesia, increase the success and the safety of the nerve blocks making this tool a must to learn for all the practitioners in this field. Our vision is to make our corporation a reference center in the region for ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks simulation.

Ultrasound guidance in anesthesiology and acute pain medicine represents an effective, safe and efficient alternative to the landmark techniques and to the nerve stimulation. It superiority is still limited by the mastering of its techniques by the anesthetist and the acute pain physician.

Our mission is to reinforce the benefit of the ultrasonic guidance by the spread of its practice through effective training.

The Program Aims and Goals
Our aim is to organize many workshops that teach:
1. Ultrasound Guided Upper and Lower Limbs Nerve Blocks
2. Ultrasound Guided Chest and Abdominal Walls Nerve Blocks

Learning Objectives 

After participating in the workshop, the participant will be able: 
  • To describe and discuss the principles of ultrasound.
  • To detect critical structures that need to be avoided to improve patient safety in regional anesthesia.
  • To have a solid understanding of the anatomy and sonoanatomy of the femoral region, sciatic nerve and posterior thigh, the adductor canal, the neck and brachial plexus, and the abdominal wall and chest wall.
  • To recognize and describe the sonoanatomy in normal patients.
  • To real time practice of ultrasound scanning for regional anesthesia blocks.
  • To employ ultrasound guided regional anesthesia skills to improve block success rate and patient satisfaction.
