Maverick Medical Education offers a course combining Regional Anesthesia Essential Techniques and Point-of-Care Ultrasound with Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access:

  • Regional Anesthesia Essential Techniques teaches the basics of regional anesthesia, including ultrasound-guided nerve blocks. The course covers a wide range of topics, including ultrasound physics, anatomy, image interpretation, and needle guidance techniques to perform 8 basic regional nerve blocks.
  • POCUS with Vascular Access teaches the crucial skill of point-of-care ultrasound as an assessment tool, and how to utilize Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access. The course covers the basics of ultrasound physics and anatomy, as well as the specific applications of POCUS in these areas.

This course is ideal for CRNAs, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other allied health professionals who want to learn the skills necessary to perform ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia and POCUS. The course is also a great way to stay up to date on the latest advances in these areas.

Online Didactic Modules

Students must complete the online didactic modules before attending the Hands-On Cadaver Lab. The modules are an interactive online learning system that allows students to complete course prerequisites at their own pace and preferred location. The didactic material can be completed in approximately 16 hours independently at the user’s own pace and time.

Users can access content from any computer, tablet, or any other device with an internet connection.

Hands-On Cadaver Lab

On day one, students will apply lessons from the online didactic modules to experiential training exercises in a clinical environment, developing confidence and proficiency in administering peripheral regional blocks. Using Maverick’s patented pulsatile cadavers, the workshop allows students the most realistic clinical environment available for nerve block training. Live models provide diverse anatomy for ultrasound landmark identification.

On day two, students will go through point-of-care assessment stations taught by experts demonstrating on live human models, as well as have a second opportunity to solidify their skills in the cadaver lab.
