Prerequisite(s): Permission of the faculty

Through classroom lectures students will learn about all aspects of the practice of regional anesthesia. Students will 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 will also gain an understanding of the use of ultrasound guidance and peripheral nerve stimulation for peripheral nerve blocks. Management of complications associated with these blocks will also be discussed. A skills lab in which students will be instructed and practice the techniques of neuraxial blockade will reinforce concepts taught in the lecture portion of this course. 2 credit hours
