The State University of New York at Buffalo Regional Anesthesia and Acute Pain Management workshop is unique compared to other regional anesthesia training programs. The key component of this workshop is training
on expertly dissected cadavers. For a private practitioner it is
difficult to transition from observing ultrasound guided anatomy
on a live model to performing a regional block on a patient
ready to undergo surgery. The SUNY workshop fills that gap.
The participants learn the techniques of the ultrasound guided
regional anesthesia on cadavers. They are able to identify the
anatomy on a live model and then proceed to a cadaver and
perform the block using a single injection technique as well as
insert a catheter for a continuous blocks. The hands-on cadaver
training gives you the tools you need to perform regional
anesthesia blocks in private practice.
