PROVIDING ADEQUATE care to the large number of patients critically ill with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a resource-intensive task. Reducing duration of mechanical ventilation may assist in decompressing intensive care units (ICUs). Standard of care in managing ARDS includes lung-protective ventilation and appropriate diuresis.1,2 Recent literature regarding using portable ultrasonography at the bedside (point-of-care ultrasound or POCUS) on critically ill patients suggested current use in modern ICUs.

ConclusionsSonographic evaluation of the radial nerve at the first operation was a useful method to detect conditions of the nerve which can prevent compression or entrapment of the nerve and the need for secondary nerve exploration.

Abstract Procedural anesthesia is administered by family physicians for a variety of conditions, including neuropathies, fracture reduction, foreign body removals, and complex wound management. A nerve block may be preferred because it provides effective regional anesthesia with less anesthetic. Nerve blocks require a thorough understanding of relevant anatomy, aiding the physician in optimizing the anesthesia effect while minimizing complications. Nerve blocks can be guided by bony landmarks, peripheral nerve stimulation, or ultrasonography. Ultrasound-guided nerve blocks are superior in decreasing procedural com...

Abstract Family physicians use anesthesia to provide diagnostic and procedural analgesia for conditions such as neuropathies, fracture reduction, foreign body removals, and complex wound management. Local infiltration of anesthetics is commonly used in this setting because of the ease of use, safety, and effectiveness of the procedure. Nerve blocks are a specific regional anesthesia technique that blocks nerve function distal to the injection site. An understanding of the sensory distribution of the peripheral nervous system is essential in determining the safest and most effective nerve block for the procedure. T...

te;n Cecili Macián-Romero Of the five nerves that innervate the foot, the one in which anesthetic blocking presents the greatest difficulty is the tibial nerve. The aim of this clinical trial was to establish a protocol for two tibial nerve block anesthetic techniques to later compare the anesthetic efficiency of retromalleolar blocking and supramalleolar blocking in order to ascertain whether the supramalleolar approach achieved a higher effective blocking rate. A total of 110 tibial nerve blocks were performed. Location of the injection site was based on a prior ultrasound assessment of the tibial nerve. The...
