The Atlas of Ultrasound and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia shows how to use ultrasound technology and how to master guided nerve stimulation techniques to achieve consistently good results. Throughout the book, ultrasound images are correlated with MRIs to enhance anatomic identification. In addition, peripheral nerve block techniques for upper and lower extremities and the trunk are demonstrated step by step. With visualized needle placement and the ability to see the nerves, ultrasound and nerve stimulation-guided techniques instill confidence in the anesthesiologist, offer safety to patients, and enhance the efficient use of time in the operating room.

From the reviews:
"This is an extremely valuable addition to the field. It is a compilation of practically all that we know about ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia." (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Review Service, February 2008)
"The completeness of the book based on the most current technological advances in the field of regional anesthesia is laudable. This atlas represents an excellent educational tool for both neophytes and teachers of ultrasound and nerve stimulation-guided regional Anesthesia. At the same time, it embodies a reference book of outstanding value for the more proficient regional Anesthesiologists." (Jovan Popovic, Anesthesia and Analgesia, Vol. 106 (6), June 2008)
"The authors are to be congratulated for a well-designed book that explains their approach to performing regional blocks with the aid of nerve stimulation and ultrasound . ... This is an excellent resource for any clinician performing regional blocks." (Steven R. Clendenen, Anesthesiology, Vol. 109 (4), October 2008)
"Atlas of Ultrasound- and Nerve Stimulation-Guided Regional Anesthesia has a wealth of practical information for both students and seasoned anesthesiologists ... . fills the vacuum in the literature on modern regional anesthesia techniques, and ... it should deserve a spot in every anesthesiologist's library." (Admir Hadzic, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, January 2009)"It is a highly detailed book and contains most of the information that one is likely to require, the use of coloured tables for particularly useful information is very good. Because of this it is a good book to dip in and out of when required. So all in all it is a book that comprehensively covers all that one would want from a reference relating to the use of ultrasound and nerve stimulation in regional anaesthesia." (N. Hawkins, Anaesthesia, Vol. 65, 2010)
