Peripheral Nerve Stimulation in the Acute Pain Setting

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

7-8:15 pm ET

Live webinar

Registration closed at 4pm ET on June 30

CME Certificates   Educational Materials

The use of percutaneous peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) as an opioid-sparing technique may not be widely appreciated in the acute pain setting and is currently under-used in clinical settings. In this webinar, faculty will discuss the rationale and evidence for the use of percutaneous PNS in the acute setting and provide clinical scenarios where this technique can be used. Best practices, safety profile, and limitations also will be addressed.

Topics include

  • Basics of PNS and neuromodulation in percutaneous PNS
  • Differences between PNS and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Clinical application of percutaneous PNS in acute pain management
  • Current evidence of efficacy of PNS in treating acute pain
  • Benefits of using PNS
  • Limitations of percutaneous PNS in acute pain management
  • Future directions

Free to ASRA members; $50 for nonmembers

This program will also be recorded and available as an On-Demand CME event with a separate registration process.
