We’re only a week and a half away from opening the doors.
It has been a long time coming – we can only hope Melbourne can stay the course over the next few days to hit this thing out of the park.
See you soon
Suean and Mike
P.S. – November is almost here meaning the next #coachingcorner is in the planning – if you have a topic you’d like to discuss let us know. Last month’s session on lumps and bumps – plus recordings of the previous sessions – are available for you free any time.
Hey y’all, it’s the 22nd day of #blocktober! Today we’re discussing a staple of upper limb blockade, the supraclavicular brachial plexus block. The “spinal of the arm”, this workhorse is a go-to for everything from shoulder to digit surgery.
It’s the 21st day of #Blocktober ! Today we discuss ways to stay out of trouble–and more specifically, out of the nerve. Needle-nerve contact is known to cause inflammation and injury, and we can use several monitors to prevent getting too close.
Yo yo, it’s the 19th of #blocktober, and that means rectus sheath blocks! This old school technique has enjoyed a resurgence and is now part of some of our ERAS pathways for abdominal cases with midline incisions. Also a fave for urgent ex-laps when TEA contraindicated.

Good morning #blocktober friends! On our 19th day we’ll discuss the suprainguinal fascia iliaca (#SIFI), a useful technique that confers quality analgesia and improves outcomes for patients with hip fracture. We also use it for THA. What are you using this for?

Can non-physician advanced retrieval practitioners (ARP) acquire and interpret diagnostic views of the lungs with sufficient quality to aid in the diagnosis of pneumothorax in the pre-hospital and retrieval environment?
It’s the 15th day of #blocktober! Today we’re discussing ultrasound guided blocks of the nerves in the distal upper extremity: median, ulnar and radial. Great for hand surgery and also as a rescue block. What are you using these for? Enjoy!
