ULTRASOUND-GUIDED REGIONAL ANESTHETIC TECHNIQUES IN SMALL ANIMALS
Jan 15th – Feb 26th, 2021 (7 weekly live-streamed & interactive Modules)
The first of its kind anywhere, this exciting webinar series will familiarize you with a range of topics within the relatively new and rapidly-evolving field of ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia. Taught by world-renowned experts, each session will introduce you to different ultrasound-guided regional anesthetic techniques that can be used to provide anesthesia and analgesia for commonly-preformed surgical procedures in small animals. Topic areas include epidural anesthesia, peripheral nerve blocks of the thoracic and pelvic limbs, and fascial plane blocks of the abdomen and thorax. Pertinent literature will be considered; however, the main focus of each session will be to introduce you to these ultrasound-guided techniques and how to successfully incorporate use of these blocks into clinical practice. Through in-depth discussions of anatomy, drug selection, required equipment, what are the desired ultrasound images to obtain, and expected effects and contraindications, you will develop a working understanding of these important new techniques and how you can use these blocks to contribute to multimodal pain management and balanced anesthesia in your own small animal patients.
This series covers the following 7 topics that have conveniently been split up into 2 ½-hour weekly sessions that cover:
- Introduction to Ultrasound-guided Regional Anesthetic Techniques
- Epidural Anesthesia
- The Thoracic Limb
- Proximal Pelvic Limb Surgery
- Stifle & Distal Pelvic Limb Surgery
- Interfascial Plane Blocks & The Abdomen
- The Trunk
