If you are committed to reducing opioid prescriptions while providing effective, non-addictive pain control, you won’t want to miss the SonoSite Visual Medicine Workshop on Ultrasound-Guided Opioid Prevention.

  • Learn more about the opioid epidemic
  • Practice regional nerve blocks for emergency medicine including, serratus, fascia iliaca, and median nerve blocks for traumatic pain control
  • Gain understanding of how ultrasound fits into your ERAS and Perioperative protocols
