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.

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.
Dr. Theresa Bowling will present this webinar which is designed to teach the participants how to perform an ultrasound-guided thoracic paravertebral single shot nerve block and catheter placement. The relevant gross and ultrasound anatomy will be discussed and will include ultrasound video tutorials for needle and catheter placement. Indication and contraindications for performing this block will be discussed in detail. Pertinent literature supporting this block for anesthesia and analgesia will be also be presented.
