Approaches to Block for Brachial Plexus Anesthesia Approaches to Block for Brachial Plexus Anesthesia
This study compared two commonly used approaches to ultrasound-guided brachial plexus regional anesthesia for upper limb surgery. What are the pros and cons of each?BMC Anesthesiology
ConclusionSpecialist breast surgeons familiar with ultrasound can be readily upskilled to perform vacuum-assisted procedures safely and expeditiously. VAE represents a minimally invasive method of breast lesion management and is a technique with which breast surgeons should become adept.
This article attempts to briefly outline the role of ultrasound and its applications for airway management in patients.
Conclusions: The use of measured guided needle with guard significantly improved the accuracy, success and ease of USG guided IJV cannulation and decreased complications.
Conclusion: For surgeries under brachial plexus block, perineural dexmedetomidine when used as a part of MMA provided a prolonged duration of postoperative analgesia and improved block characteristics than perineural buprenorphine.

The local anesthetic dosages used in the current literature in regional applications of local anesthetics are frequently high for surgical purposes, and there are no sufficient dosage studies for emergency department (ED) management.

ConclusionENB is a safe diagnostic procedure in an everyday setting with an acceptable diagnostic yield that offers a possibility to diagnose pulmonary nodules in patients for whom other diagnostic procedures are too hazardous or have proven unsuccessful.
IN THE United States, lung ultrasound is being used increasingly in intensive care units (ICUs) for both surgical and medical patients. Moreover, we are seeing a trend toward the use of bedside ultrasound to reduce reliance on diagnostic techniques that require radiation and/or intra-hospital transport of patients. However, the utility of ultrasound in pediatric cardiac surgery has not been established, and its adoption by intensivists is far from uniform. In this context, the work by Cantinotti et al.
