SOLD OUT -- Advanced Regional Cadaveric Workshop

August 4, 2019

  • Cost — $600
  • Sixteen (16) credit hours available
  • Workshop offered at the MTSA Campus

Cadavers will be utilized for needling on pulsatile specimens, ultrasound instruction, administration of block medium, and catheter insertions. Workshop content will consist of classroom lectures, hands-on demonstration, “live” model scanning, and individualized instruction utilizing high faculty-to-attendee ratios.

The following blocks will be taught and demonstrated: PECs I/II, erector spinae, infraclavicular, serratus anterior, costoclavicular, RAPTIR, quadratus lumborum, TAP (iliohypogastric/ilioinguinal, transversalis, and posterior TAP), suprascapular (anterior and posterior approaches), PENG, and paravertebral nerve blocks. Advanced approaches to upper and lower extremity will also be taught, to include: axillary at the circumflex artery, distal upper/lower USGRA blocks, and anterior sciatic.

Anatomists from a local university (trained PhDs and DPTs) will be performing the dissection and instruction of the anatomy related specifically to regional anesthesia. Simultaneous explanations of sonoanatomy will coincide with the gross anatomic dissections. These anatomists will also teach neuromuscular assessment of nerves, mapping of nerve lesions, and documentation of these findings.

Faculty for the daylong workshop includes: Bill Johnson, DNAP, CRNA, Director of the MTSA Acute Surgical Pain Management Fellowship; Stace Dollar, MS, CRNA; and, John M. Edwards, III, MS, CRNA; Kelly Martin, MS, CRNA; and MTSA Acute Pain Fellows.
