So I was wondering today, as an eternal student, a regional anaesthetist,and Past @RegionalAnaesUK president - what would make me want to attend #RAUKISURA22 on the 5-7th May 2002 in Edinburgh? So - Here Comes a mini thread!
@RegionalAnaesUK has been working hard to change the way we deliver education in #RegionalAnaesthesia
Check out some of highlights from #RAUK19 in Belfast organised by @LloydTurbitt @rosie_hogg @PeterMerjavy @davejohnston24 & Mike Jones ra-ukmeetings.com/past-events
The Belfast meeting was the first time we used on stage symposia to bring an engaging feel to the event, & the first time we had such a North American & Canadian presence at our meeting + #POCUS with @KiJinnChin , @shaskinsMD , @SLKoppMD, @JanBoublikMDPhD

Hey it's the 28th day of #blocktober!! Today we're talkin' ESP blocks--anatomy, mechanism, technique & tips. ESP seems to be quite versatile, & comparative studies show comparable effect to many other block techniques, while being easy and safe. What are your thoughts? #DukeRAP
And here's the video for ESP blocks. Really interested to your thoughts--are you using this? For what? Successes and failures? #blocktober #DukeRAP #FOAMEd #RegionalAnesthesia @SreeHPraveenKO1 @kaohesham @sanjibadhikary @Ropivacaine

Happy Monday, #blocktober friends! Today we discuss the femoral and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks--we use these for lower limb trauma, ACL repair, and amputation, as well as the occasional complex TKA patient. How about you? #DukeRAP #RegionalAnesthesia #FOAMed
And here's the video for femoral and LFC nerve blocks...enjoy! #blocktober #DukeRAP #RegionalAnesthesia #FOAMed

Happy #Blocktober 24th! Let's talk parasternal blocks! Multiple names/approaches but essentially one deep and one superficial--both block the ant. cutaneous IC nerves, and benefit breast, cardiac & trauma patients. What are your thoughts on these? #DukeRAP #RegionalAnesthesia
And here's the video highlighting the anatomy and techniques for the two most common approaches to parasternal blocks: the pecto-intercostal fascial block (#PIFB) and the transversus thoracic plane block (#TTPB). Enjoy!

It's the 21st day of #Blocktober ! Today we discuss ways to stay out of trouble--and more specifically, out of the nerve. Needle-nerve contact is known to cause inflammation and injury, and we can use several monitors to prevent getting too close. #DukeRAP #RegionalAnesthesia
And here's the lecture video....enjoy! #DukeRAP #Blocktober

Yo yo, it's the 19th of #blocktober, and that means rectus sheath blocks! This old school technique has enjoyed a resurgence and is now part of some of our ERAS pathways for abdominal cases with midline incisions. Also a fave for urgent ex-laps when TEA contraindicated. #DukeRAP
And here's the video for rectus sheath block...enjoy! #Blocktober #DukeRAP #RegionalAnesthesia #RegionalAnaesthesia

Good morning #blocktober friends! On our 19th day we'll discuss the suprainguinal fascia iliaca (#SIFI), a useful technique that confers quality analgesia and improves outcomes for patients with hip fracture. We also use it for THA. What are you using this for? #DukeRAP #FOAMEd
And here's the accompanying video for fascia iliaca block. Enjoy! #DukeRAP #blocktober #FOAMed

Hey it's the 12th day of #blocktober and we're talking PECS blocks--a very useful fascial plane technique that's been shown to improve recovery and provide comparable analgesia to paravertebral blockade. What's been YOUR experience? Chime in! #DukeRAP #RegionalAnesthesia
And here's the PECS video #DukeRAP #blocktober #FOAMed #RegionalAnesthesia

PENG block:
1. an alternative to femoral or fascia iliac block for hip pain
2. motor sparing
3. simple to perform
4. if you can do a femoral block you can do a PENG block
@EMARIANOMD @jeffgadsden @amit_pawa #Blocktober #regionalanesthesia #ANES20 #MedEd #FOAMed
Some pertinent anatomy.
Where do you put the local? Just deep to the psoas tendon which is visualized on the ramus, creating a nice pool

#Blocktober keeps on rollin! Today, we're doing Mythbusters, #DukeRAP style, and taking a hard look at the long-held dogma of "never use epinephrine in digital blocks". Is it real? What's the evidence of harm or benefit? #regionalanesthesia #ANES20 #MedEd #FOAMed Image
And here's the video discussion: Mythbusters: Never use epinephrine with digital blocks. Agree? Disagree? #Blocktober #ANES20 #regionalanesthesia #MedEd #FOAMed

On day 3 of #blocktober, we're changing gears to focus on the basics. One of my favorite parts of academics is watching a fledgling anesthesia resident grow their ultrasound skills over the course of the block month! #MedEd #DukeRAP
It takes PRACTICE to achieve competency. In fact, @barringtonmj showed it takes 28 trials of the SAME block with immediate DELIBERATE FEEDBACK to reach competency. So take a breath, look down at your hands, and be systematic to find your needle tip!

It's Day 2 of #blocktober ! Thanks for the amazing engagement yesterday!! Today we're drilling down on the adductor canal block and how best to maximize efficacy and safety. Our technique has changed over the years..has yours? #DukeRAP #FOAMed #MedEd #Regionalanesthesia
Here are some articles on the anatomy of the adductor canal at the mid-thigh + the vastoadductor membrane and its role in separating the two nerves.

#meded #Thread @nelkassabany starts #AnesGR with his take home points:

➡️ Always think about adding value
➡️ Measure outcomes that matter to patients
➡️ Involve all stakeholders
➡️ Bust silos

#medthread #regionalanesthesia
#regionalanesthesia takes commitment!

@nelkassabany quotes @aboezaart1: "A block is not a one night stand..."
Developing a comprehensive enhanced recovery protocol means considering all phases of patient care. Patient education and engagement are key!
