Get to the Point: Video Presentation of Local/Regional Anesthetic Block TechniquesLocal anesthetics are powerful drugs with a unique (and inexpensive) role in pain management – they STOP pain. We will discuss why local anesthetic blockade is recommended for every painful procedure and will view step-by-step videos.

Anesthesia & Analgesia Practice Pearls, Updates and Tips – What is new? What has changed? What can make anesthesia safer? What is most effective for analgesia? We will answer these questions and more in a semiar geared to send every attendee home with something new or different to try in their practice.
