Anesthesia/Pain Management Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Ultrasound-Guided Regional Anesthesia and Pain Management
edited by Paul Bigeleisen

This full-color text/atlas describes all of the nerve blocks for which ultrasound guidance has proved efficacious, including upper and lower limb blocks. The chapter organization is similar to Chelly's Peripheral Nerve Blocks book: each block is described by concise text covering the indications for use, necessary equipment, anatomic landmarks, approach, and technique. The blocks are richly illustrated by ultrasound stills and relevant anatomy.
