CRNAs will be provided a 4-hour hands-on educational seminar on the use of hands-on ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia. No lecture will be provided at the conference.  However, attendees will be required to review an online 60-minute lesson prior to the conference date.  The virtual and in-person workshop will qualify for 5 CEU credits.  Attendees will rotate through four stations at the meeting: 

  • Station 1: Phantom targets. Needle approximation on gel based phantoms (low fidelity), knobology
  • Station 2: PECs 1 and PECs 2/interscalene live model scan
  • Station 3: POCUS with gastric antrum and lung scanning
  • Station 4: Adductor canal & popliteal live model scan

Program Objectives:

  • Participants will increase fundamental knowledge of the sonoantomy of the brachial plexus and fascial plane blocks of the chest
  • Participants will gain insight into the sonoanatomy of the adductor canal and sciatic nerves of the legs
  • Each course attendee will have the opportunity to enhance their needle approximation skills on phantom targets
  • Course attendees will become familiar with basic scan optimization of the ultrasound machine using depth, focal zone, gain, and where appropriate dynamic range and color flow.
  • Participants will gain a basic understanding of gastric antrum scans for "full stomach" situations, and lung scanning

Space is limited for this workshop!  Register early.

Registration fee includes breakfast and refreshments.  Lunch is not included.
