What is Regional Anesthesia?
There are four major groupings of anesthesia, with regional anesthesia being one of them. Local anesthesia is concentrated in a very small part of the body and blocks pain but not necessarily pressure. General anesthesia is what is thought of as “going all the way under” as the anesthesiologist will put the patient in a simulated sleep. Both neuraxial and regional anesthesia fall somewhere in the middle of these two, with regional anesthesia being a little more specific in its space. According to Harvard Medicine, “local anesthetics are injected near clusters of nerves to numb a larger area, or region, of the body.” Very typical examples of this are regional anesthesia being administered to the armpit for hand surgery or into the neck to relieve certain ailments.
What does our course cover?
The Regional Anesthesia Essentials course covers major blocks that can be applied in several settings throughout medicine. Students will find that their pre-learning modules, when combined with the proficiency lab, will make their skills usable immediately. The blocks taught include the interscalene, supraclavicular, axillary, femoral, and more. By teaching essential blocks located in different parts of the body with a number of different applications, we are ensuring our students can better serve their clinical settings. We also teach the importance of ultrasound assistance and postoperative pain management.
