For this third edition of a reference for anesthesiology residents, fellows, and practitioners, Brown (anesthesiology, pain medicine, University of Texas) updates specific techniques and expands the authorship of the book to include physicians carrying out procedures that are important in a variety of practices. New techniques added to this edition include ultrasound in regional anesthesia, continuous nerve block techniques, paravertebral blocks, and selective nerve injection. There is also a new section on chronic pain, and new material on basics of spinal cord stimulation. Procedures are organized according to regional block anatomy, with sections on each block giving information on patient selection and pharmacologic choice, anatomy and positioning, and clinical pearls. The art program offers b&w X-rays and other images and color illustrations of surgical procedures on every page.
