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.

Join Theresa Bowling, MD for a discussion of the indications and techniques for ESP blocks with an emphasis on their use for post op pain management after spinal fusion surgery. The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Protocol for spinal fusion surgery that was developed at Dr. Bowling’s institution, and the subsequent research they have published on decreased opioid consumption, will be presented and discussed.
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. Vrushali Ponde, pediatric anesthesiologist from Surya Children's Hospital, presents, "Role of Ultrasonography in Pediatric Regional Anesthesia. Dr. Ponde outlines the scope and practice of regional anesthesia in pediatrics, explains the advantages of using ultrasound in pediatric regional anesthesia, and discusses the challenges in anesthesia for the pediatric population.
In this webinar, Jeffrey Gonzales, MD, MA discusses the uses of ultrasound for neuraxial analgesia and anesthesia. Specifically, he discusses the utility of ultrasound for epidural and subarachnoid (SAB) access, reviews the potential advantages of utilizing ultrasound for epidural/SAB access, demonstrates optimal visualization of posterior complex in both SAX and LAX views of lumbar spine, and demonstrates scanning and identification techniques with ultrasound for epidural/SAB access.
