Exciting news! The first study for the Stellate Ganglion block [...]
We certainly know more about COVID now than we did then and, with that, comes new treatment options, especially for some of the long-lasting symptoms some patients are having. Maverick Medical Education tries to find a number of applications for the blocks and methods we already teach and the application of the Stellate Ganglion Block to treat some of these symptoms is just one of them.
When Maverick Medical Education looks for courses to offer to medical professionals around the country, we are considering what may best serve patients and communities. Pain management and relief techniques have always been a part of what drives our educators, but as we saw more and more techniques better performed with ultrasound assistance, we realized that there was a valuable tool in Point of Care Ultrasound, or POCUS, as well. This nimble diagnostic tool can be used in any field and offers medical staff the chance to quickly assess what is taking place inside a patient’s body, with the ability to understand how that patient is progressing throughout their stay. POCUS is versatile in how it can treat and help the patients we serve today and tomorrow.
Maverick Medical Education has always been passionate about training medical professionals in a wide array of techniques to provide communities with the best care and treatment options. We also reap the benefits of seeing how the techniques we are invested in can be utilized in different ways, rapidly adapting to serve the needs of our patients. While we intrinsically understand the importance of Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) in multiple settings, we never imagined the benefits it may have to help medical teams in treating a global pandemic.
