Ultrasound for the Anesthesiologists
Ultrasound-guided needle placement is becoming more popular among anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists as a way to increase operating efficiency while reducing placement difficulties and patient pain. The use of ultrasonography in anesthesia-related needled placements has been supported by medical studies. The anesthetist can use ultrasound guidance to ensure a precise needle location and monitor the local anesthetic distribution in real-time. There are substantial advantages over traditional guidance techniques such as nerve stimulation and loss-of-resistance operations. The reader will learn about the theory and practice of ultrasound-guided anesthesia in adults and children in this review. These techniques should play a role in anesthetic training in the future, given their immense potential.
