"Atlas of Regional Anesthesia"
If you superimpose the two images of the arm at page 29, figure 3-2 and
3-3, you will see the interception of the median antebrachial cutaneos
n with the C5 dermatome. It counteracts the brachial plexus anatomy. C5
don't supply the "median antebrachial cutaneos n".

Summary: NO Photographs
I was disappointed to find no photographs used in this atlas. The
diagrams are all drawings. It is not a how-to-do book but a reference
Summary: beautifully illustrated guide
This book although pricey covers just about every block one could
imagine and does it in a way that shows off all the strengths of the
After a general chapter on equipment each section is started with a
review of the pertinent anatomy of the region followed by descriptions
of the various blocks for that region. Each technique is prefaced with
a brief discussion of the 'big picture' of the block, then the local
anatomy, positioning of the patient, and placement of the needle is
covered. There is a nice little concluding paragraph covering gothchas.
Whilst this text is aimed at the trainee/practising anesthetist, others
may find it useful. For example fellows in pain management will find
all the 'standards' are covered. It's only weakness arises in this
context: use of supplemental imaging is not discussed except in facet
Summary: lovely text
I am a CRNAP practicing in an ansethesia group that does a great deal
of regional anesthesia. We have developed a library of texts to be used
for reference/review. This text is the best of the lot with clear
concise illustration and excellent text. If you wish to have just one
book to use as a reference, this one is it.
Summary: Very helpful atlas
very useful book, which contains clinical tips
