Fifth Annual National Basic and Advanced Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia Symposium and Workshop


The University of New Mexico is hosting the 5th annual National Basic and Advanced Ultrasound-Guided Regional Anesthesia Symposium and Workshop from October 3-4, 2015.

There will be a basic and an advanced program. The basic program is geared towards anesthesiologists with little to no experience in ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia (UGRA). Participants will leave this workshop knowing how to perform high yield upper and lower extremity blocks using ultrasound guidance and have the confidence to perform these blocks clinically.

The advanced program is for anesthesiologists who have experience in ultrasound guided regional anesthesia (UGRA) and are looking to take the next step. Our workshop empowers participants to be proficient in difficult blocks and to be able to perform UGRA on patients with difficult anatomy.

The symposium is at the same time as the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta which is from October 3-11, 2015.
