Brown, David L.

Elsevier Saunders


400 pages




Previous editions were published in 1992, 1999, and 2006; this third edition incorporates the necessary updates and is enriched by the participation of six contributors who supplement the expertise of author David L. Brown (The Cleveland Clinic, Ohio). After introductory chapters on local anesthetics and regional anesthesia equipment, subsequent sections address blocks of the upper extremity, lower extremity, head and neck, airway, trunk, and neuraxis, as well as chronic pain blocks. Each of 21 procedures is illustrated with clear, elegant artwork and other images and is described in terms of use, technique, pitfalls, and pearls. The online site (access included with purchase of the text) contains the full text, links to PubMed abstracts, and 12 videos demonstrating correct anatomic needle placement.
