Course Highlights

The course offers a structured curriculum, starting with critical insights into local anesthetic systemic toxicity, followed by principles for performing nerve blocks, including needle selection, volume determination, and in-depth anatomical knowledge. Each session is dedicated to a specific procedure, such as suprascapular nerve block, glenohumeral joint hydrodilation, or the treatment of calcific tendonitis, among others. The course emphasizes the advantages of ultrasound guidance for accuracy, safety, and cost-effectiveness, supported by ample evidence from relevant studies.

Participants are guided through various injection techniques, including for conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, meralgia paresthetica, and trigger finger. The course also covers more extensive procedures such as the fascia iliaca block, caudal epidural, and genicular nerve block, highlighting the importance of ultrasound in improving outcomes and minimizing complications.

Throughout the workshop, attendees will witness live demonstrations, video presentations, and engage in interactive sessions that not only impart theoretical knowledge but also cultivate practical skills necessary for their medical practice.
