Basic Workshop:
This workshop will focus on basic ultrasound based regional anesthesia techniques designed for novices and intermediate skill level practitioners who desire to learn more about the blocks provided every day in a busy pediatric practice. Delegates will become familiar with basic principles of ultrasonography and needle maneuvering, applied anatomy, and will scan pediatric models.

At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  1. Acquire basic understanding of ultrasound principles for imaging anatomic structures
  2. Evaluate the anatomy and resultant sonoanatomy necessary to provide common regional blocks in infants and children
  3. Scan live pediatric models to practice the skills necessary to visualize nerve blocks used in everyday pediatric practice
  4. Incorporate acupuncture into the care of pediatric patients.


Advanced Workshop:
This workshop will focus on advanced regional anesthesia techniques and is designed for the experienced, advanced practitioner who wants to improve technique and learn more difficult blocks. Delegates will become familiar with advanced applied anatomy and will scan pediatric models.

At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  1. Acquire basic understanding of ultrasound principles for imaging anatomic structures
  2. Evaluate the anatomy and resultant sonoanatomy necessary to provide advanced regional blocks in infants and children such as Fascia Iliaca, paravertebral, lumbar plexus, PECS, and quadratus lumborum blocks.
  3. Have the opportunity to “ask the experts” in a free form forum
  4. Scan live pediatric models to practice the skills necessary to visualize nerve blocks used in advanced pediatric practice
  5. Incorporate acupuncture into the care of pediatric patients.
