REGIONAL ANAESTHESIA A POCKET GUIDE


Description

Review

Overall, this is a most attractive, easy-to-read, practical handbook of regional anaesthesia... As an established practitioner of regional anaesthesia, I will refer to it frequently, and I may even be encouraged to attempt less commonly used techniques within my own practice, with this for bedside reference... A welcome addition to the regional anaesthesia literature! British Journal of Anaesthesia Z September 2014

Product Description

Regional Anaesthesia: A Pocket Guide is an essential companion to the practice of regional anaesthesia for consultants and trainees in the specialty. Filled with practical advice and carefully designed for ease of use, this book is the helpful aid to practice that anaesthetists have been waiting for. 

The book covers all the major blocks by anatomical region, from the head and upper extremities, to the lower extremities and para-axial region. The technique for each procedure is prefaced by information on its difficulty, indications, contraindications, and potential side-effects. Every procedure is also accompanied by a range of high-quality clinical photographs and anatomical drawings that demonstrate the importance of applying anatomical knowledge in practical anaesthetic procedures. 

Regional anaesthesia is a fast-moving specialty, and this book takes into account recent advances in ultrasound-guided techniques with a strong focus on real-time observation of needle placement. Landmark-placed blocks have are also covered for clinicians without access to ultrasound technology. 

Regional Anaesthesia: A Pocket Guide is a unique compilation of anaesthetic techniques that offers support and guidance for any trainee or specialist in their every day practice.
