Clinical Practice

Ultrasound-Guided Truncal Blocks (1 Class A CE)

Sunday, September 23
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Ballroom A, Hynes

Ultrasound education among anesthesia providers varies greatly as its use in anesthesia related procedures is fairly recent as well as the training and education received in anesthesia training programs. The current opioid epidemic has necessitated practitioners to adapt multi-modal pain management strategies to optimize the care of their patients. When performed correctly, truncal blocks have been shown to improve patient outcomes with minimal side effects. Baseline knowledge among anesthesia providers becomes sufficient so that ultrasound can be used safely to improve patient care and outcomes.
