BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Educating residents in peripheral nerve blockade may impact the efficiency of a busy regional anesthesia service. Ultrasound guidance may affect the efficiency and effectiveness of nerve block. We examined the impact of ultrasound guidance on resident performance of peripheral nerve block in a regional anesthesia rotation. METHODS An existing de-identified database was used for retrospective analysis of resident performance of interscalene, axillary, femoral, and… CONTINUE READING
