Regional nerve blocks are important procedures in anaesthesia and pain therapy that can be employed rapidly and safely by a skilled practitioner.
The book contains precise anatomical drawings and illustrations in full-colour throughout, and also provides detailed instructions on how to apply local anaesthesia.
Practically oriented, the book could almost be taken to the operating room and used as a guide. It covers anatomy, indications, contraindications, dosages, explanations of individual drugs, as well as complications, caveats, and potential adverse side effects, and how to avoid them or treat them.
Each procedure is explained step-by-step using numerous full-colour illustrations and photographs. Every block has a photograph showing the entry site accompanied by an anatomical diagram showing the needle track. For each procedure, a specific form (record and checklist) is provided for recording the individual treatment steps. The author presents both familiar and new therapeutic techniques for both the treatment of pain and regional nerve blocks during surgery. In addition, the most recent local anaesthetics and additives are discussed, with particular reference to the relevant indications and dosages.
