Course Overview

Educational objectives

Ultrasound Guided Nerve Blocks

the course is designed for the anaesthesiologists who want to acquire knowledge and experience in ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia. At the conclusion of the course, the participants should be able to identify the nerves and describe principles and techniques in ultrasound guided nerve blocks. The attendees should be able to demonstrate relevant skill in the practical application of needling with the ultrasound guided technique. The course objectives are-

  • To provide an overview of the anatomy of the various nerves of upper limb, lower limb and trunk
  • To cover the approaches and describe the technical steps of each nerve block
  • To discuss indications of upper and lower limb block
  • To provide hands-on sessions on cadaveric specimens and improve skills of using ultrasound guided nerve blocks
  • To allow case discussion between experts and trainees

Course programme

Ultrasound guided Upper limb Nerve Blocks

  • Interscalene Brachial Plexus Block
  • Supraclavicular approach to Brachial Plexus Block
  • Infraclavicular approach to Brachial Plexus Block
  • Axillary approach to Brachial Plexus Block
  • Radial, median and ulnar nerve blocks

Ultrasound guided Lower limb Nerve Blocks

  • Sciatic Nerve Block
  • Subgluteal approach
  • Popliteal approach
  • Femoral nerve block
  • Obturator Nerve Block
  • Lateral Femoral cutaneous nerve block
  • Subsartorial saphenous nerve block

Paravertebral Block

Truncal Blocks

Transabdominal Plane Block

Epidural space localisation

*Localisation and Needling techniques in all above Blocks

Airway Management

Basic airway Techniques

  • Nasopharyngeal airway Insertion
  • Airway Maintenance Techniques: Chin Lift and Jaw Thrust
  • Layngoscopy and endotracheal intubation

Supraglottic airway device Insertion

  • Classic Laryngeal Mask Airway
  • Proseal Laryngeal Mask Airway
  • I Gel LMA
  • Cobra LMA
  • Intubating LMA
  • Air Q

Fibreoptic guided intubation Invasive Airway Procedures

  • Cricothyroidotomy
  • Transtracheal jet ventilation
  • Percutaneous tracheostomy



The primary purpose of the cadaveric facility is for the training of Postgraduate students, emergency physicians and surgeons from all over India


  • To study the movement of cervical spine while performing airway  procedures.
  • To practice the invasive procedures which are used in difficult intubation.
  • To study the movement of cervical spine while performing Sellicks maneuver
  • To design innovative, techniques for managing airway in unstable spine fractures by creating cervical spine fracture.

Interventional Pain Management

Join us for a cadaveric hands on session on fluoroscopy guided interventional pain management for chronic pain. Cadavers are best simulators known. The workshop will provide all participants an opportunity to practise these procedures on cadavers.

The course objectives are:
1. To understand fluroanatomy of head-neck and lumbar spine
2. Demonstration of needle placement for various blocks
3. Hands on session for all the participants
4. Trouble shooting and discussions with experts

Target Audience: Interventional pain specialists, Anaesthesiologists

Course programme
Power point presentations, demonstration by expert followed by hands on session on following procedures

Head and Neck:
Trigeminal Neuralgia
Sphenopalatine ganglion block
Stellate ganglion block
Cervical epidural
Cervical medial branch block

Lumbar epidural
