Abstract

There is an increasing trend in the use of peripheral nerve blockade for postoperative analgesia in children, and the use of ultrasound guidance to perform peripheral nerve blocks is gaining popularity. A thorough knowledge of anatomy will help in performing the appropriate block, and will also aid in better use and understanding of ultrasound guidance. In this article, we briefly review the use of ultrasound guidance to perform common upper and lower extremity and truncal blocks.
