The Mayo Clinic Atlas of Regional Anesthesia and Ultrasound-Guided Nerve Blockade is a practical guide that provides a detailed and systematic approach to regional anesthesia of the upper and lower extremity, including ultrasound-guided regional techniques. The book provides a comprehensiveoverview of both traditional and ultrasound-guided techniques of brachial plexus, lumbar plexus, and lumbosacral plexus blockade. Each regional technique is clearly described and illustrated with ultrasound images accompanied by corresponding color anatomic illustrations. Specific informationprovided within each chapter includes clinical applications, relevant anatomy, surface anatomy, proceduralist and patient positioning, traditional and alternative approaches to the technique itself, needle insertion site, needle redirection cues, ultrasound Sonoanatomy, ultrasound-guided techniques,side effects and complications, and suggested reading. Special emphasis is given and abundantly illustrated on hand position and how to precisely grasp and manipulate the ultrasound probe and needle for each block technique. Successful regional anesthesia is predicated on a sound knowledge ofanatomy and local anesthetic pharmacology - both of which are clearly presented and well-illustrated within the book. Finally, the text provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental principles of ultrasonography, relevant Sonoanatomy of the upper and lower extremity, and the technical skillsnecessary to become clinically proficient at ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia.
