Practical Ultrasound in Anesthesia for Critical Care and Pain Management PDF
5.74 MB PDF
The uses and applications of medical ultrasound are increasing, particularly outside traditional areas of radiology practice. Anesthesiology critical care and pain management are no exception. Just about every invasive procedure in the body can potentially be enhanced by the use of ultrasound. The introduction of small, portable, easy-to-use, and relatively inexpensive ultrasound machines has accelerated the use of such devices at the bedside by specialists in anesthesiology and related disciplines. Similar changes are occurring in other specialties such as surgery, accident and emergency medicine, and gastroenterology. Nevertheless, the use of such devices outside radiology has not met with universal approval. Issues of competency, training, and accreditation have all been raised and are clearly important as these techniques enter mainstream practice.
In this book, we provide core knowledge of how to use ultrasound devices safely. We then explain practical applications of these devices. The main areas where such techniques are to be used include the vascular system, the nervous system, the heart, the respiratory system, and miscellaneous other areas of the body. This will be of value to anesthesiologists and critical care physicians. Pain specialists will be interested in applications for nerve blocks. The book is not meant to be the definitive reference for ultrasound in these areas; rather it is aimed to provide a useful introduction combined with detailed practical information on the more commonly used applications. While catering to the needs of trainees in anesthesiology, critical care, and pain medicine who would want to apply the latest techniques from the outset, we also hope to assist accredited and certified specialists in these areas to introduce ultrasound techniques safely into their routine practice.
