Brandon Winchester, MD, Regional Anesthesia Fellowship Director, Andrews Institute for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, Co-Founder, BLOCKJOCKS.COM - The adductor canal block is a novel regional anesthesia technique for major knee surgery that has emerged over the last several years. While adductor canal blocks provide similar rapid onset analgesia compared to traditional femoral nerve blocks, their advantage vs. femoral blocks is that they spare the quadriceps muscles and therefore do not result in motor weakness in the leg.

Alexis LaPietra, D.O. presents novel medications and modalities for the management of acute pain in the emergency department. She discusses ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and its importance in managing the pain associated with fractures and dislocations. Additionally, she presents evidence to support the use of trigger point injections and a multi-modal analgesic approach for musculoskeletal pain.
Gregory V. Hickman, MD, Medical Director and Anesthesia Director from the Andrews Institute, ASC discusses the "Hickman Flip" approach for interscalene catheter placement, and the benefits and his success with this approach. Dr. Hickman also lists the indications for using interscalene block and catheters and explains how to use point-of-care ultrasound to identify anatomy and assist with the procedure.
Dr. Stephen Haskins presents the emerging role of focused cardiac ultrasound as a powerful tool for the anesthesiologist in the perioperative setting. He discusses how point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) changes the way patients should be evaluated, and how medical decisions are made. He highlights ultrasound as a change agent for the future of the physical exam, and explains how technology has the ability to rapidly bridge the education and experience gap in medicine. Dr.
Professor Martin Zoremba, MD is the Director of Anesthesia, Intensive Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Pain Therapy at Siegen District Hospital in Germany. In this webinar, Dr. Zoremba reviews the basic principles of hemodynamics in point-of-care, discusses Transthoracic Echo (TTE) as an indicative tool, outlines the important measurements and indicative signs, and introduces a rational hemodynamic algorithm.
Watch the interview with Dr. Enrico Storti, Anesthesia and ICU Director/Unit Coordinator of the Emergency Department at Maggiore Hospital, from the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in Lodi, Italy.
Dr. Davinder Ramsingh, Director of Perioperative Ultrasound and Clinical Research with the Department of Anesthesiology at Loma Linda University Medical Center presents, “Introduction into Perioperative Point-of-Care Ultrasound.” He reviews advances in ultrasound technology, discusses how point-of-care ultrasound is relevant to the perioperative setting and how it improves the physical examination and bedside assessment techniques; and presents the F.O.R.E.S.I.G.H.T protocol – a comprehensive educational curriculum on point-of-care ultrasound that focuses on the perioperative setting.
Dr. Wolf Armbruster, Dr. Rudiger Eichholz, and Dr. Thomas Notheisen present this webinar to discuss current techniques for puncturing vessels and ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia. They review ultrasound-guided nerve blocks and vascular access. This includes discussing benefits of using ultrasound-guidance during interventions and procedures, specific probe maneuvers, sonoanatomy, and needle tip control.
Dustin Morrow, M.D. presents this webinar to review why credentialing and privileging physicians in ultrasound is important, discuss the different hospital-specific guidelines to determine standards by which physicians are qualified to perform certain ultrasound-guided procedures, and describe expectations for competency and the ongoing training and demonstration of that competency.
