Johns Hopkins Pediatric Regional Anesthesia Workshop: Live Scanning on Standardized Patients and Simulator Training on Phantoms Banner

Date & Location
Saturday, June 16, 2018, 7:15 AM - 4:10 PM, Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD


The use of ultrasound imaging techniques in anesthesia is rapidly becoming an area of intense interest to those involved in the field of perioperative care. Ultrasound imaging techniques will increase the provider confidence and lead to more reliable peripheral nerve blocks. There is increasing evidence that ultrasound guidance is increasing block success rate over nerve stimulations techniques. Further, the block quality resulting from ultrasound guidance has led to a marked decrease in both intra-operative and post-operative opioid usage.

PNB administration is relatively new, the majority of currently practicing anesthesia providers are not trained in its use. With the increased use and availability of ultrasound machines, many more regional anesthesia techniques are utilized and newer techniques are being incorporated. At most institutions, nerve block training is taught via lectures and live scans on a standardized patient, however, the use of needles for a nerve block is not taught We often see a learning gap of using needle and probe. In this workshop, we are not only focused on illustrating lectures and live scans on patients, we also focus on using phantoms of each block so participants can practice blocks in real time.

This activity is intended for pediatric anesthesiologists, fellows and residents.

After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
  1. Describe the most common blocks performed in current regional anesthesia practice.
  2. Recognize the indications and best ultrasound-guided nerve block techniques of upper and lower extremities.
  3. Correctly distinguish the anatomical structures on standardized patients by using ultrasound on live models.
  4. Perform needle techniques & transducer maneuvers on phantoms.
