Ultrasound-guided Regional Anesthesia Current State of the Art

  author={David C. Warltier},
HIGH-RESOLUTION ultrasound can provide direct realtime imaging of peripheral nerves and identify tissue planes that permit favorable local anesthetic distribution for conduction block and catheter placement. To be successful at ultrasound-guided neural blockade, one must be familiar with the relevant cross-sectional anatomy and the coordination of the imaging probe with the block needle. Ultrasound has many roles in pain management interventions, both peripheral and neuraxial.
