ANE 576 - Regional Anesthesia I
(2 cr.) Through classroom lectures, students learn about the overall practice of regional anesthesia and how to determine when regional anesthesia is preferred over general anesthesia. Students gain an understanding of the anatomy specific for each type of regional block as well as techniques for establishing the block and the local anesthetics. Students learn and practice sterile techniques and placement of spinal and epidural blocks using the patient simulator. Management of the complications associated with these blocks is discussed. The course includes a skills lab, in which students are practice the techniques of neuraxial 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
