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. Colleagues who are more advanced will be grouped together to allow for more rapid progression of topics and more advanced learning.

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.
