II: Ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia

This 2-hour regional anaesthesia workshop focuses on supervised hands-on needling practice and ultrasound scanning of relevant structures. It capitalises on a low participant: instructor ratio (6:1) and real time performance feedback.

Workstations include live model ultrasound scanning of peripheral nerves and fascial planes at the level of limbs and trunk, as well as hand-eye coordination and needling skill practice in a gelatine phantom.

At the end of this workshop, participants would have acquired knowledge of imaging and needling techniques for select regional anaesthesia procedures relevant to their practice. 

At the conclusion of the regional anaesthesia workshop, the participant should be able to:

  • Correctly identify relevant sono-anatomy of select peripheral nerves and fascial planes
  • Simulate performance of an ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve block in a gelatine phantom

Stations:

  1. Upper limb blocks: A. Onutu
  2. Lower limb blocks: S. Clendenen
  3. Trunk blocks: tbd
  4. Needling (phantom): G Iohom

III: Peribulbar or sub-Tenon's blocks
