|(2 cr.) Students gain an understanding of the use of
ultrasound guidance and peripheral nerve
stimulation for peripheral nerve blocks. They
learn anatomy and surface landmarks and proper
placement of local anesthetics for femoral,
popliteal, ankle, sciatic, cervical plexus,
recurrent laryngeal nerve and retrobulbar blocks.
Effective management of complications arising
these blocks is presented. The course also
includes a skills lab in which students practice
the techniques of neural blockade to reinforce
concepts taught in the lecture portion of the
course. There is a practical final exam in
addition to the in-class final exam.
