Hadzic’s Peripheral Nerve Blocks and Anatomy for USGRA offers up to date information for beginners or novice in the field of Regional Anesthesia. Having just purchased the book, i am impressed at what this book has to offer. This is an impressive textbook written by worlds expert in the field. It offers fundamental knowledge on performance of nerve blocks with nerve stimulation as well as ultrasound guidance. What is unique about this textbook is the display of gross anatomical dissections along with ultrasound imaging. This is something that i have never seen in other textbooks. Furthermore, most chapters offer flowcharts that help to summarize important facts and details. This book is a must buy for residents in training and anesthesiologists in practice.

This is printed on glossy paper throughout with glorious color illustrations. I am a first year Orthopedics and Trauma resident in Japan and I found this extremely helpful and easy to understand. All the recommendations are very practical and based on literature reviews and the ultrasound images are state of the art. The range of techniques described is impressive. All the rarely used and new blocks are here and described in detail so I feel I can start applying them with the book alone even though I don’t have anyone to guide me through the procedures here.
On Hokkaido we don’t have enough anesthesiologists so when I go to work at a rural hospital next year I would probably have to make extensive use of this manual. Gonna add a review based on clinical experience then.

This book is great for beginners especially for residents, but it can be used as a reference book for anesthesiologists that work in the field. It has insightful information on Regional Anesthesia with great images and explainations. It covers Nerve Stimulation and Ultrasound Guidance and each chapter has great tips and techniques. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to be up to date in anesthesiology field.

Great book. Gives a lot of information but in an easy to understand manner. Excellent resource for novice and advanced students.
