A one-day, practical course, focusing on hind-limb ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia; highlighting the relevant literature, driving the shift to this type of anaesthesia for hindlimb surgery.

Appropriate analgesic protocols are essential, to ensure excellent patient outcomes, within the clinic or hospital environment. The benefits of utilising local blocks are extensive;  and include lowering your clinic's carbon footprint, by reducing the inhalant gas requirements, during surgery. 

This course will take you from physiology to contraindications, via a hands-on wet lab practical session and will be of interest to any veterinary surgeons who routinely perform hindlimb surgery.

Vets attending this course should have a good level of ultrasound experience, in order to take full advantage of the practical session.

Experienced RVNs may also attend this course.

Digital course notes, refreshments, and lunch will be provided.
