Course Information

Join us at Cleveland Clinic 6th Annual Cadaver Regional Anesthesia Ultrasound and PoCUS Workshop.

Overview:

This course is designed for Anesthesiologists who are seeking to advance their skills in ultrasound guided regional anesthesia. This course includes lectures, hands on workshops on fresh frozen human cadavers and live models. This course is a great learning opportunity for anesthesia providers with strong emphasis on small group learning and real time hands on practice of regional anesthesia blocks. The PoCUS (point of care ultrasound) workshop for the Anesthesiologist is designed to introduce the use of ultrasound for emergency cardiac evaluation, pulmonary, gastric and airway evaluation at bedside.

Learning Objectives:

After participating in the workshop, the participant will be able to:

  • Recognize and describe the sonoanatomy of vessels, peripheral nerves, tendons and nerve plexi.
  • Describe and discuss the techniques to refine and improve the quality of the ultrasound image obtained.
  • Practice needle insertion techniques; identify the block needle trajectory and the spread of local anesthetic.
  • Practice the ultrasound guided regional anesthesia blocks real-time on cadavers.
  • Employ ultrasound guided regional anesthesia skills to improve block success rate and patient satisfaction.
  • Detect critical structures that need to be avoided to improve patient safety in regional anesthesia.
  • Scanning and identification of diaphragm, pleura, gastric volumes and basic transthoracic cardiac views.

Who Should Attend?

Physician Anesthesiologists, Fellows and Residents in Anesthesiology & Critical Care.
