ANE 577 - Regional Anesthesia II
(2 cr.) Students gain an understanding of the use of ultrasound guidance and peripheral nerve stimulation for peripheral nerve blocks. They learn anatomy and surface landmarks and proper placement of local anesthetics for femoral, popliteal, ankle, sciatic, cervical plexus, recurrent laryngeal nerve and retrobulbar blocks. Effective management of complications arising from these blocks is presented. The course also includes a skills lab in which students practice the techniques of neural blockade to reinforce concepts taught in the lecture portion of the course. There will be a practical final exam in addition to the in-class final exam. Every Year, Spring
