Designed for quick reference on the wards or in the operating room, this pocket-sized flip-book depicts the anatomic landmarks whose location is essential for successfully performing peripheral nerve blocks.
Each chapter first presents basic anatomy including landmarks and then proceeds to brief descriptions of the most widely used blocks, as well as tips to troubleshoot problems and avoid complications. Full-color computer-generated drawings show surface anatomy and relevant deeper anatomic structures. Both upper and lower limb blocks are included. The book is spiral bound at the top and printed on heavy, laminated paper to allow use in the operating room.
