Regional Anesthesia

The management of postoperative pain in the ambulatory surgical setting can be challenging. The use of regional anesthetic techniques, along with multimodal systemic analgesics and pain risk stratification, can be of significant benefit in postoperative analgesia.

Our goal at SAMBA is to provide our members with concise, up-to-date, and evidence-based information that can be of help with regional anesthesia education and clinical decision-making.

Please keep in mind that responsibility for all regional anesthetic techniques and clinical decisions ultimately rests with the clinician.

Regarding regional anesthetic techniques, many members have found in-person training to be most beneficial. If you would like to practice hands-on scanning for “must-know” blocks, we encourage you to attend the ultrasound workshops at our annual SAMBA meeting.
