Regional anaesthesia is used across specialties within anaesthesia, and is a rapidly growing sub-specialty. This new handbook covers both traditional and ultrasound guided techniques, concentrating on the differences between them. Offering readers a comprehensive overview for clinicalpractice, it includes paediatric and acute pain applications. Each topic covers anatomy, contraindications, landmark/US settings, technique, complications, and clinical notes. Discrete sections on pharmacology, principles, and training further the book's use for teaching purposes.It will appeal to both trainees and consultants in regional anaesthesia, as well as anaesthetic nurses and anaesthetic practitioners. Presented in the Oxford Specialist Handbook series, it offers practical advice as well as background information in a convenient pocket-sized title.
