Advanced Ultrasound-Guided Techniques

MASTERCLASS LEVEL 3
Location Weehawken, NJ, USA

Best for.

Delegates who already are practicing some ultrasound-guided nerve block procedures but need authoritative, standardized instructions to gain additional execution confidence, and learn new techniques. This Masterclass workshop builds on the Level-2 program and expands the workshop to include the truncal blocks and some more advanced ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia techniques

What will you learn.

In this 2-day program, you will substantially expand your knowledge and confidence, learn the functional anatomy, scanning principles, and standardized techniques for advanced fascial plane blocks.

Learning methods.

You will be taken on an exciting anatomy journey with NYSORA’s all-new Virtual Cadaver Anatomy Dissection (VCAD) videos to complement the hands-on scanning in living models. You will practice and test your newly learned skills on NYSORA SIMULATORSTM so that you are ready to apply them in your practice upon return. The practice on NYSORA SIMULATORSTM is another reason why our workshops are so popular – it cuts down on the lecture-style and transforms the workshop into a heavy-duty hands-on experience that helps the knowledge retention and facilitates its clinical application.

Learning objectives.

  1. Demonstrate correct transducer position and scanning technique for motor sparing blocks.
  2. Demonstrate correct transducer position and scanning technique for thoracic and abdominal fascial plane blocks.
  3. Recognize relevant anatomical structures on ultrasound for thoracic and abdominal fascial planes (i.e., transversus abdominis plane, quadratus lumborum, erector spinae, pectoralis, serratus plane, intercostal, paravertebral, and IPACK blocks).
  4. Recognize relevant anatomical structures on ultrasound for thoracic and abdominal fascial planes (i.e., shoulder, adductor canal, femoral triangle, genicular nerves, and infiltration between the popliteal artery and capsule of the knee (IPACK) blocks).
  5. Describe the potential complications of fascial plane blocks.
