Survey Names Sonosite System of Choice for Peripheral Nerve Blocks
A late 2012 poll conducted by New York School of Regional Anesthesia and appearing in the NYSORA newsletter indicated Sonosite was the preferred system for ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks among physicians polled. Out of the total number of 3611votes, Sonosite received 3587 – about 99 per cent. The survey was conducted by Admir Hadzic, Professor of Clinical Anesthesiology, St. Luke Roosevelt and Columbia University, and NYSORA president.
Because ultrasound guidance enables anesthesiologists to visualize the needle, injections can be administered with a higher success rate than without the aid of ultrasound. Watch Sonosite's instructional video featuring 3D graphics synced with ultrasound scans.
