Peripheral Nerve Blockade

Description

The role of peripheral nerve blockade has expanded greatly over the past few years. The practice of peripheral nerve blockade has increased as a result of advances in technique, equipment, and our understanding of how and when it is indicated. There is an equally increased demand for teaching and training novel techniques requiring a new set of skills.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that help understanding the role of peripheral nerve blockade in modern clinical practice, the principles underlying the performance of safe and effective peripheral nerve blocks, and the key elements to deliver a successful teaching program.

We are particularly interested in articles describing new modalities for depositing local anesthetic solutions close to the target nerve, the impact of blocks on clinically meaningful outcomes, and economical impact of integrating peripheral nerve blockade teaching and training programs into daily clinical practice. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent developments in peripheral nerve blockade techniques
  • Advances in improving patient safety with special reference to reducing systemic local anesthetic toxicity
  • Latest evidence of improved clinical outcomes
  • Economical analysis of clinical pathways centered around peripheral nerve blockade
  • Role of continuous perineural catheters
  • Complications of peripheral nerve blockade
  • Role of adjuncts to local anesthetics used for peripheral nerve blockade
  • Role of peripheral nerve blockade as part of multimodal analgesia
  • Training and competence in peripheral nerve blockade
