About this book

Introduction

This is the first comprehensive text-atlas that shows how to use ultrasound technology and nerve stimulation techniques to guide regional blockade in children.   Clinical chapters follow a sequential, highly illustrated format that provides step-by-step guidance and include cases, clinical pearls, and troubleshooting tips.   Nearly 400 figures, consisting of ultrasound images, MRI images, and schematics, have been assembled to maximize understanding of pediatric neuroanatomy and its relationship to surrounding anatomical structures.  To help the novice user, the book features side-by-side presentation of unlabeled and labeled ultrasound images.  

Pediatric Atlas of Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia focuses on common approaches, supplemented in clinical pearls and notes by alternative approaches, and emphasizes dynamic and systematic scanning techniques.  It is intended for pediatric anesthesiologists who wish to incorporate regional blockade into their repertoire and designed as a refresher and resource for all regional anesthesiologists seeking to refine their skills. 

 Unique Selling Points: 

  • Internationally renowned experts
  • Presents two technologies proven to improve block success when used together
  • Superb coverage of pediatric anatomy in relation to regional anesthesia
  • Equipment, set-up, pain assessment, local anesthetic pharmacology, and patient safety consider
ations for child patients

Reviews

“This book is an excellent guide to regional anesthetic techniques in children. It gives a straightforward, easy-to-understand explanation of the important theoretical aspects as well as detailed, useful descriptions of the practical components of regional anesthesia. The images and visual components are outstanding. … This atlas is suitable for anesthesiologists at all levels of experience. Both trainees and consultants looking to learn about regional anesthesia will find this textbook a valuable resource.” (Arie Peliowski, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, January, 2016)

“The primary purpose is to provide an image-based, regional anesthesia book for pediatric anesthesiologists. … The book targets all practicing pediatric anesthesiologists who wish to practice or improve their regional anesthesia skill. It also will help anyone, whether a nurse or a physician running an acute pain service in a pediatric hospital. … I have no hesitation recommending this book to anyone who wants to learn how to improve the art of regional anesthesia.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2015)
