The relevant gross and ultrasound anatomy will be discussed and will include ultrasound video tutorials for needle and catheter placement. Indication and contraindications for performing this block will be discussed in detail. Pertinent literature supporting this block for anesthesia and analgesia will be also be presented. Clinical pearls to help participants perform this block successfully will round out this webinar on thoracic paravertebral blocks. Webinar Goals and Objectives: 1. Techniques to perform ultrasound guided thoracic paravertebral nerve blocks. 2. Anatomy, sonoanatomy, indications, contraindications, and literature review for TPVB single shot blocks and catheters 3. Video tutorial of ultrasound imaging of PVB.

Resuscitative Echocardiography: Visual Assessment and Doppler Measurements

On Demand Presentation / Dr. Robert Arntfield is an Assistant Professor, Director of Critical Care Ultrasound / Division of Critical Care & Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Medicine, Western University London, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Arntfield will explore case examples to highlight the value of both basic visual assessments and more sophisticated Doppler techniques when performing echocardiography to guide resuscitation. Upon the completion of the webinar, the participant will be able to: 1. Appreciate that a visual assessment alone can satisfy the majority of important clinical questions in high-stakes resuscitation. 2. Identify scenarios where a more quantitative approach using spectral Doppler, may offer an advantage over visual assessment. 3. Identify commonly referenced quantitative approaches that confer little additional benefit for the resuscitative echocardiographer.
