Description

This nerve block course is led by an Anaesthetist. For nerve blocks led by an Emergency Physician, please click here.

The provision of ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia, previously considered a niche, is now very much a core competency for all practicing Anaesthetists. However on the job teaching of the skill varies greatly between locations, making it challenging to up-skill in the area. This course will provide theoretical background and practical skills in the peripheral and truncal blocks that most Anaesthetists would be expected to be able to perform on the job.

Who should attend?

  • Anaesthetist
  • Junior House Officer
  • Pain Management Specialist
  • Palliative Medicine Physician
  • Rural Generalist

Objectives

The objectives of this ultrasound course are:

  • To identify the ultrasound appearances of nerves and relational anatomical landmarks for specific upper, lower, trunk and core blocks
  • To optimise the ultrasound machine to enhance visualisation of the anatomical regions
  • To apply ultrasound protocols to correctly locate blocks
  • To develop techniques to avoid nerve injury and troubleshoot complications associated with nerve injury
