Peripheral Nerve Blocks
A Color Atlas
by Jacques E. Chelly

Thoroughly updated for its Third Edition, this best-selling full-color atlas is a step-by-step guide to performing more than 60 peripheral nerve blocks, including those used in children.

For each nerve block, the book provides detailed information about indications, patient positioning, needle size, drug selection, volume for infusion rate, anatomic landmarks, approach, and technique and offers tips for maximizing effectiveness and minimizing complications.

Full-color clinical photographs and line art demonstrate anatomic landmarks, patient positioning, and techniques. This edition offers new material on ultrasound guidance and continuous catheter techniques.
