Introduction


Ultrasonography (USG) guided regional anaesthesia has become the standard practice due to its improved success rate and decreased complications. With the advent of USG regional anaesthesia has flourished in a way that every surgery can be supplemented with a regional block as a part of multimodal analgesia. USG guided regional anaesthesia became rampant in the last decade with many newer inter-fascial plane blocks involving the paraspinal, chest wall and abdominal wall being introduced. Also new approaches for the plexus blocks are being established with improved safety and success. Here in this educational article, we are discussing the intricacies of the USG guided Costoclavicular approach of brachial plexus block, PEricapsular Nerve Group (PENG) block, Serratus Plane block (SPB) and Supra inguinal Fascia Iliaca Block (SIFICB). The costoclavicular approach for brachial plexus block is phrenic nerve sparing and still consistently block all the nerves arising from the cords, making it a safer option in certain population of patient with respiratory compromise. PENG block was introduced in the last decade for providing analgesia for the hip orthopedic procedures and advantage of this block is that there is no motor involvement without any major complications. The SPB is a one of chest wall block used for providing analgesia to the anterolateral chest especially for breast surgery and pain management in rib fractures. Being superficial and technically easier using USG, SPB has been included in the standard pain management for chest trauma. USG guided SIFICB introduced was introduced in 2011 as a novel approach to block the major nerves of lumbar plexus anteriorly but it gained popularity in the recent past for its ability to block femoral nerve, lateral femoral cutanoues nerve and possibly obturator nerve. With this block the above mentioned nerves can be blocked easily without any complications of classical approach for lumbar plexus block.

    I have realized some significant things through your site post. One other subject I would like to state is that there are plenty of games on the market designed specially for preschool age youngsters. They include pattern acceptance, colors, family pets, and models. These normally focus on familiarization rather than memorization. This makes little children engaged without experiencing like they are studying. Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestions shared on the blog. One more thing I would like to convey is that fat loss is not supposed to be about going on a celebrity diet and trying to reduce as much weight as possible in a set period of time. The most effective way to lose weight naturally is by consuming it slowly and gradually and following some basic suggestions which can help you to make the most from the attempt to shed pounds. You may recognize and be following some of these tips, however reinforcing understanding never hurts.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
