    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".

    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

    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.
