How I Do It: PoCUS and Fascial Plane Blocks (ESP, QL, PECS, etc.)

Saturday, April 13, 10:15-11:45 am, IS-09 Ask the Experts Interactive Session

In the span of a single generation, the versatility of ultrasound has made it an indispensable tool in anesthesia practice. This “Ask the Experts Interactive Session” will explore some of the rapidly expanding clinical applications for ultrasound: Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) and fascial plane blocks.

The dynamic nature of ultrasound-guided techniques makes them ideally suited for learning by video. This interactive video session is specially designed to provide you with a unique opportunity to share your clinical experience, insights, and ‘pearls’ in a short video. This audience-driven session promises to be entertaining, engaging, and provocative. All 44th Annual ASRA Annual Meeting attendees are invited to contribute.

Specific topics covered will depend upon the videos submitted, but may address how PoCUS can be used to:

  • Assess gastric contents
  • Determine intravascular volume status
  • Diagnose pneumothorax
  • Facilitate emergency tracheal access
  • Evaluate cardiac structure and function
  • Or the utility of your favorite PoCUS technique!

The recent proliferation of interfascial plane blocks has generated a great deal of interest and controversy. Consider sharing your expertise regarding:

  • Erector spinae plane (ESP) block
  • Pecto-intercostal fascial block (PIFB)
  • Quadratus lumborum (QL) blocks
  • Pectoralis (PECS) and serratus plane blocks
  • Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block - and its variants
  • Or one of the many other blocks that have been made possible through ultrasound visualization.

Please consider submitting a video for screening. All types of submissions are welcome, from serious and straightforward to creative and entertaining; release your inner actor, director, newscaster, singer, or teacher. An expert panel has been assembled to facilitate professional dialogue. Be a part of the experience!
